Download GPS FileFraoch Bheinn from Strathan, Loch Arkaig
This walk is inspirational will be remembered for a long time. Taking you to the edge of a wilderness, it provides a taste of solitude hard to find in our crowded island. From the small settlement of Gairlochy to the west of Spean Bridge, a narrow road heads west for over 20km along the shores of Loch Arkaig to Strathan. The lochside road needs care and provides nearly half an hour of increasing anticipation as you head into the mountains. Reaching the end of the public road at a gate (grid ref. NM987916), you are in beautiful, wild Glen Dessarry surrounded by hills. Apart from a few scattered buildings you have reached a very isolated part of Scotland - the edge of the "Rough Bounds of Knoydart".
