After visiting the Carr Brae viewpoint on the north side of Loch Duich, Kintail, which is a must, followed by the famous Eilean Donan Castle on the same road, not the main one but from a higher perspective than the postcards are, I travelled to a beautiful village called Dornie, to give me my next physical walk which was a few miles past Dornie, at a small holding called Bundalloch, which leads the way to the River Glennan walk.
Go as far as you can by car, through Dornie, then cross over a small bridge until a farmhouse gate is reached. Going through the gate, a pasture for the cattle needs to be ploughed through and then you are at your leisure to travel as far as you need.
For me, on this scorching day the River Glennan was a huge disappointment due to overwhelming good weather as it was merely a trickle of itself. However I shan’t be greedy.
I went just past the base of Biod an Fhithich on one side and Beinn a Mhedhain 414 on the other, although the journey can be extended almost forever or for many miles past Camas-Luine and into Glen Elchaig with various sorties off the main drag and ending up wherever you want.
To be honest this is agreat little walk the only difficulty is the path which sometimes has a lot of stones and rubble on it but this is sue to the lack of walkers on the path.
