This beautiful short walk onto the An Aird peninsula which projects out into Loch Torridon from Shieldaig, one of the most picturesque villages in the Highlands. There are many lovely spots to admire the shoreline and look for otters and herons.


Good track initially. The path parts are very rocky and rough in places - so be warned; there is also a brief wetter section.

Public Transport

Bus from Lochcarron/Kinlochewe.


Car park at Shieldaig near the public toilets. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
