Even the drive down to this walk is stunning. The views are ever changing as you approach the Loch down the long single track lane. The walk itself is straightforward to follow and after getting to the bench at Point 8, we found it hard to get back up again ... we could have sat there all day savouring the views. A real treat of a walk which gives you a gentle introduction to this area. Dog friendly too.
