Loch an Nostarie circuit, Mallaig

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This circular walk combines sea views with a visit to an attractive hill loch; the downside is that the terrain on the middle part of the walk is often very wet underfoot. For a very short and easy visit to Loch an Nostarie - with dry feet - try walking just the first section of the Loch Eiregoraidh route as far as the picnic table.


The route is waymarked with posts but the path itself is sometimes indistinct; the section between the Mallaig circuit path and Loch an Nostarie is extremely boggy.
