This pleasant circular walk takes you from Inverfarigaig, on Loch Ness' side, up to a viewpoint overlooking the loch, on to another delightful loch called Lochan Torr an Tuill ('loch of the rocky hollow', known locally as 'The Magic Loch') where there is a picnic site, then it's back to Inverfarigaig, passing near Boleskine House. The start of the walk is a climb to 170m, the central part a switchback and the rest a gradual descent.

Most of the route is in forest, much ot it being open and bright. Wildlife includes ducks and waterhens on the Magic Loch, deer in the forest and the occasional buzzard above.

Boleskine House was, in the early 1900s, a centre of sorcery and the black arts. It was owned in the 1970s and 1980s by the popular guitarist Jimmy Page (see Additional Information).

This is a pleasant family walk. Boots are recommended as there are muddy bits. There are toilets, information and picnic tables at the car park.
