Dornie and Glen Shiel

Dornie and Glen Shiel

At the heart of Kintail is the dramatic Glen Shiel, encircled by steep mountains. The north side of the glen is formed by the famous Five Sisters range and its easterly continuation; a true classic amongst ridgewalks. Opposite it is the South Glen Shiel Ridge - no less fine and yielding seven Munros in a day for the keen bagger. These are joined by the magnificent Saddle, one of the finest mountains in all Scotland.

East of Glen Shiel the mountains around Loch Cluanie give equally fine walking; whilst at the foot of the Glen is the village of Dornie with famous Eilean Donan Castle. The Falls of Glomach near here are probably the most dramatic waterfalls in Britain.
