A very scenic circular family walk on the south side of Loch Torridon, in Wester Ross, giving marvellous views across the loch to the Torridon Mountains. The early part goes round the Aird Mhor Peninsula, where there is a view every few metres, while the later part follows the tumbling River Balgy upstream, passing the Falls of Balgy, to where it emerges from Loch Damh. We were fortunate enough to be here at the end of June, when the masses of rhododendrons in the area were in bloom... very colourful.

There is no steep climbing and the paths are everywhere good. Boots are advised. Between Waymarks 14 and 15 the Balgy has cut a steep gorge and children should be watched.
