Follow the Beinn Eighe Mountain Trail through a beautiful nature reserve on this circular walk near Kinlochewe. On the walk you will pass attractive pinewood woodland, mountainous lochs, white quartzite crags and pretty waterfalls. The views over Loch Maree and the Torridon Mountains are simply stunning.
The route starts from the car park at the southern end of Loch Maree. From here you gain access to the waymarked mountain trail. The trail climbs through woodland and past burns and waterfalls to the high point where you will find a small loch and a cairn.
It's a challenging walk with steep and rocky sections.
