Rosemarkie beach and Hillockhead circuit

This circular walk has great variety. Starting with a sandy beach, it continues along a rough and rocky coastline. A steep climb gives fine views before the walk continues with country lanes and then a final descent through a lovely wooded glen, complete with waterfalls.


The shoreline section of the walk cannot be completed at high tide, and runs over tiring terrain - a mix of sand, rounded pebbles and rough boulders. Steep climb up path from coast; otherwise minor roads and footpaths.
