Route Outline

For people who like to walk 'off the beaten track' and to escape from crowds of people, it does not get much more remote than this. The Arkaig Hills are located in one of the parts of the Scottish north-west highlands where other walkers are less likely to be seen than the occasional deer in the distance.
