Knockfarrel from Strathpeffer

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This superb walk follows paths across the flanks of the hill overlooking Strathpeffer before climbing up to the ridge to visit the site of a vitrified fort with wonderful views. It then continues along the ridge to a minor summit before a final, rougher descent.


Mostly easy to follow paths, slightly muddy in places. The descent from Cnoc Mòr is rougher and very steep and but this can be avoided if desired.
