North Kessock and Kilmuir circuit

This scenic circuit is just over the Kessock bridge from the Highland capital, Inverness. It runs along an attractive shortline to reach the hidden hamlet of Kilmuir before returning along the flanks of Ord Hill.


Mostly good paths and minor road, but one section is tidal - impassable at high tide. This part runs along a rocky shoreline, slippery with seaweed.
