Craig to Kinlochewe

The stage of the route uses the Coulin Pass - with relatively easy paths and some superb views. The downside is the final 2km along an overgrown path that sorely tests the patience, especially with a heavy pack.


Clear, firm footpaths and tracks. The final 'path' into Kinlochewe is a frustrating battle through the undergrowth that'll only please the member of your party that insisted on bringing that heavy machete, although there are plans to improve the path.

Public Transport

There is a rail station 4km from Craig at Achnashellach; Kinlochewe is served by buses from Inverness.
