Glen Carron: Lochcarron to Achnasheen

Glen Carron: Lochcarron to Achnasheen

Loch Carron is a wide and beautiful sea-loch, with much fine woodland. Lochcarron village is the main centre of the area, its many picturesque cottages lined up all along the waters edge, whilst on the opposite shore of the loch is the supremely kept Attadale Gardens.

Stretching east from the head of the loch is Glen Carron. The pinewoods here are being restored, and with pretty lochs, grand sandstone mountains to the north and the wilderness of Monar to the south this is a region with a great deal to offer for the walker. East of here is the small village of Achnasheen set in Strath Bran. From Achnasheen roads link to Kinlochewe and Torridon just to the north.
