Passing a few other sights like Loch Garry, Loch Loyne and Loch Cluanie, my first port of call was a walk opposite the Cluanie Lodge on Loch Cluanie’s north side. The walk starts about one mile before the Cluanie Inn.
On the lochside there is a small niche on the left hand side of the road, hardly what I would call a lay-by but a space to leave your car. Cross the road and go back about one hundred yards to a well signposted sign.
The route is very walkable and rises up right from the roadside, where there are fine views of Loch Cluanie and Cluanie Lodge, hidden in some forestry .
Firstly the impressive Sgurr an Fhuarail 987 is very visible rising in the next valley, however one soon loses sight of this as we are overcome by Am Bathach 734 and to the right we have A Chralaig 1120. The glen is called An Caorann Mor and stretches for around five miles where it comes to a junction of a few other walks, near the famous to hillwalkers bothy of Alltbeithe and Glen Affric.
Take the O.S. map 33 with you as you may wish to elongate your walk rather than return to the original starting point, since there are a few choices open to your degree of fitness and desire. There are some fantastic vistas and can easily be a full day out.
