This is a delightful, scenic All-Abilities walk near Lochinver, West Sutherland. Well laid out, surfaced and graded, it gives easy access to two lochs and a viewpoint in wild country. Off the paths, deer-grass predominates over heather on the peaty ground and a copse of birch clothes the drier viewpoint hillock. Buzzards are common and when at the viewpoint turn your binoculars to the west wall of the Quinag, where you could see an eagle enjoying a thermal. At the two lochsides there are toilets and shelters; and for anglers a jetty and a boat adapted to allow disabled anglers to enjoy their sport (see Additional Information). There are beautiful views to Quinag and Suilven. Footwear is not a problem for walkers. Dogs are welcome. Refreshments, shops etc are in nearby Lochinver.
