|Length: 6 mile return||Duration: 3 Hours.|
A real easy and thus more enjoyable walk through the hills is a sortee along Glen Lichd in Kintail near Shiel Bridge. The village of Morvich is the real starting point, just make your way to the Activity Centre, park the car and then you can find a nearby gate, signposted for Glen Lichd and you will be on your way. This is a real uncomplicated walk and really is just a leg stretcher for greater things, although, as per usual, the scenery is worth the walk.
The full walk into the glen can be as long as 6 miles but the vistas don’t change much. I reckon I walked about 3 miles out before returning back to the Centre. The path is a sort of tractor route and is very kind on the legs. Most of the way consists of unfenced cattle and sheep and follows the meandering River Croe and is dominated on the left hand side for most of your journey by the awesome and precipitous Mheal an Fhuarain Mhoir.
The weather on this particular day was as fine as it gets for walking but I can imagine this neck of the woods when Mother Nature decides not to play ball. Scary.
