This excellent linear walk starts at Achnashellach Station and follows the River Làir with good views of Fuar Tholl, Sgòrr Ruadh and Beinn Liath Mhòr before descending to a pretty waterfall and Scots pines at Easan Dorcha. A level section leads to Loch Coulin with great views of Beinn Eighe and then skirts Loch Clair with views of Liathach to reach the main road through Torridon - quite a short cut from the road route! This route can be shortened by taking the forestry track and Coulin Pass variation, which is the traditional route though less scenic.


Well constructed paths, tracks and minor roads with only short boggy sections near Loch Coulin. Uphill section over the pass and then easy going.
