Without a doubt my favourite and best walk in the whole district was Glen Tatnach. An easy going and enjoyable stroll of three or four miles without any undulation, a river for company, some wildlife and a great amount of time to think and not worry about where the next foot is going to land.

As I was staying in the local hotel, the walk which almost starts there, is one to be remembered.
Leaving from the left of the only church in town, take the path under Ben Gulabin 806 for over a mile, then you will find the walk turns northwards with sights of Dalmunzie House and the entrance to another valley walk leading eventually to Glas Tulaichean 1051.
This area is very scenic.

Carrying on, Glen Tatnach follows a small river, might be Shee Water, on a good track, all the way past Creag Dallaig 724 until the path runs out under Creag Easgaidh 841. You have now been walking for around four miles and if you feel energetic or wish to maybe camp out for the night try making it to Loch nan Eun beneath Beinn lutharn Bheag 963, over a mile onwards.

Other sites on the way you can see are Glen Lochside Burn which is near to an old dismantled railway line and just to the north of Glenlochsie Farm is Creag a' Chaise,
