A walkers paradise!

The Munros of Ben More Assynt & Conival are right behind the Lodge, and are the two highest peaks in Sutherland. The rest of the Assynt mountains are equally dramatic (some say more so!). Suilven is recognised as one of the iconic mountains of the north-west, if not the Highlands. Canisp, Quinag, Cul Mor, Cul Beag and of course Stac Pollaidh each offer a fantastic day out - and exceptional views.

For those who don't fancy the high peaks there are many lower level walks to keep you occupied. From Stoer lighthouse there is a walk to the Old Man of Stoer sea stack, inland you can wander below Canisp & Suilven on the path from Elphin to Lochinver, or below the cliffs of Quinag from Little Assynt to Nedd.

Shorter walks to the Kirkaig Falls, the Bones Caves at Inchnadamph, from Achmelvich along the coast to the old Mill, and around the Little Assynt estate all abilities and/or 'loop' path are all popular.

Futher details of walks in Assynt can be found on the walking wild website, and the Assynt Tourism site.
When you are here pick up the free walking routes in Assynt booklet.

Two Long Distance walks pass close to the Lodge - The popular Cape Wrath Trail a 200 mile trek over rough ground from Fort William to Cape Wrath on the north coast has been established for a number of years.

More recently a new Sutherland Way Trail has been proposed by Cameron McNeish in TGO magazine - starting in Lochiver and crossing the north-west corner of Sutherland to end at Tongue on the north coast. The route passes the spectacular mountains of Suilven, Canisp, Conival, Quinag, Ben Stack, Arkle, Foinaven and Ben Hope.
