Re: Glenfinnan parking

Yes that one towards the viaduct, you've now got to park at the NTS car park a little way south - but there is a new car park planned (for the middle area) but completion timescale isn't known yet as far as I'm aware

Re: Walking route to Stac a'Phris Arch, Lewis

OS Map attached to the Walkhighlands route description should help - the arch is not far from the marked route and as far as I remember there would be no issue with just working your way closer to the cliff edge - the line in the route description was taken in order to stick to the easier ground, av...

Re: Using trains or buses to access walks

It's true that there is little public transport in some parts of the Highlands, but Walkhighlands features over a thousand walks reachable by some form of public transport. All walks have a public transport section which should also help planning. You can also use the Find a Walk search facility to ...

Re: Sotland's Watershed part 12 The Ups & Downs to Fionn Bhe

so enjoying your very non-"feeble crawlings" - looks like I just missed you on Bealach Bhearnais - also saw those trainers (probably still there I thought about taking them but wasn't sure if someone might come back) and I also got grumpy with the tangerine peel on the track - good luck wi...

Re: Winter walking advice

Yes, good advice. In snowy conditions this route is often banked out by snow and the very steep coire headwall makes it a notorious blackspot for avalanches. If conditions are ok for it you could try heading up the way this WH route description comes down and just go up and down the same way - click...

Re: Steall Falls

WH description for Steall Falls here - puts it at 1.5 - 2 hours each way so factor in 3-4 hours round trip.

Re: Hi everyone

Guessing you've already seen the WH description on here - the easiest route, but you can also go via Glen Turret

Re: Car parking.

I understand that Bayfield carpark (the big one near the YH) in Portree is about to get parking charges - might be an option to park at Broadford and bus to the start

Re: Beware of route changes!

The route was changed on Walkhighlands late 2018 to reflect the diversion around the back of this house - our understanding is that the Council's Access Officer had approved the diversion. Our guide should be up to date and it's still a lovely route. There is a layby opposite the car park if the lat...

Re: Pap of Glencoe

Hi Started-late Just to emphasise Arthurs Eat's comment - you really do need to take a map and compass on this route. We've had people contact Walkhighlands to say how difficult and dangerous this route is and that the path was very hard to find - everyone's experience and perceptions are different,...
