Rhiconich to Sandwood Bay

This short linking stretch of the Trail follows minor roads of the most part; the route as described bypasses Kinlochbervie but this village is an alternative option for an overnight stop. The final stretch of the walk follows a track and then an excellent path to the stunning beach at Sandwood Bay. It is assumed that you plan to wild-camp here (no facilities - leave no trace) - or alternatively continue to Strathchailleach bothy.


Tarmac road for the most part; section beside loch and final stretch to Sandwood Bay on tracks and paths.

Public Transport
