Loch Cuaich (Quoich) road closure

Highland Council has issued a notice that the road up Glen Garry, passing Tomdoun and on to Kinloch Hourn is to be closed from Monday 13th May, until Friday 20th December.

This affects a huge number of walking routes, including the Munros on either side of Loch Cuaich (formerly Quoich on maps), and road access to the Cape Wrath Trail at Kinloch Hourn.

However, the closure order is only be in force between 9am and 12 noon, and 1pm to 3pm each day. We have been further been advised that SSE will only enforce on weekdays and will allow vehicles to pass unrestricted at weekends. If planning to walk in this area on a week day, you need to arrive at the start before the road closes.

The closure is to facilitate works by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks.
