Kyle of Lochalsh and Plockton

Kyle of Lochalsh and Plockton

The western part of Lochalsh is the extensive Balmacara estate owned by the National Trust for Scotland. This landscape has no great towering peaks, but instead it has a mixed crofting landscape with fine natural woodland. This softer landscape contrasts with the majestic mountains further inland.

Pretty crofting villages such as Duirinish and Plockton, the Jewel of the Highlands, add interest to walks in this area, whilst the views over to the Isle of Skye could hardly be bettered. The area also has several small beaches which are little known but easily visited by those aware of them.
