A very pleasant walk (one of several here) a few miles west of Lairg and Bonar Bridge. It's mostly in open forest but has a diversion to visit the striking series of waterfalls on the River Cassley (a noted salmon river) where there is a picnic site and lovely pools for swimming. There is a lot of interpretative information en route and at the unique log cabin information centre at the car park. We hoped to see one of the Sika deer (imports from south-east Asia) but were unlucky. This is a good family walk, with dog. Boots are best.

A really lovely walk and easy to follow. The paths are marked and there are maps at the information centre / parking lot - this walk follows mostly the yellow and then the green trails. We went off course slightly. Instead of going back to weigh mark 8 after weigh mark 12 at the falls, we carried on around the cemetery and followed the river until we reached a track on the left that took us back to the single-track road we crossed at weigh mark 9. We took a right and walked along the road, past the Achness Hotel on the left (where I believe you can get something to eat). Just before reaching the main road, there are some horses to the right and a signpost on the left for the Rosehall trail that leads back up the hill, joins the main trail again beyond weigh mark 13 and then down to the car park. We would recommend that route instead of trekking back up to weigh mark 8, because you can spend more time walking by the river and falls. Thanks for a lovely walk! We sadly also didn't see any deer.
