Cuairt Cromor, South Lochs

This short but challenging short circular walk from Cromor packs plenty of interest and has been waymarked by wooden posts. Note that near the end of the route it is necessary to wade the outflow of the loch - this is roughly knee deep and is over slippery rocks and broken mussel shells, so needs to be done still wearing footwear - even then it requires great care. A route with such an obstacle would not normally be featured on Walkhighlands but due to the waymarking and local promotion we feel it is better to provide a description so walkers know what to expect.


Pathless and very rough, though mostly waymarked with wooden posts. Near the end of the walk is a almost knee deep wade through a loch outflow - this can be slippery and requires great care.
