This short, scenic walk is a combination of two, the River Affric Walk and the Am Meallan Walk. The River Affric here tumbles out of Loch Affric into Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin, thence down to Fasnakyle Power Station. Along the river the pines of the old Caledonian Forest backed by several Munros, notably Sgurr na Lapaich (Hill of the Helpless) make for delightful viewing and photography. We don't go far up Am Meallan, only to a viewpoint (marvellous) and a cairn. Paths are good (boots best) - it is an excellent family walk (with dog). We were lucky enough to see a golden eagle, two buzzards and two red deer.

This is a very short walk (though we enjoyed it so much we took an hour to do it), but combined with the nearby Dog Falls Walk (910) it makes a good day's outing. There is a toilet at the car park. The nearest food and drink is at Cannich.
