Slioch, near Kinlochewe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The view of the craggy fortress of Slioch across the waters of Loch Maree is one of the classics of Scotland featured in countless calendars. At close quarters Slioch offers a reasonably straightforward ascent given that formidable appearance, and the summit views over Loch Maree and into the Fisherfield wilderness are sensational.


A long, tough walk with some steep, rough terrain and boggy ground; pathless section on return.
