Across Assynt: Elphin to Lochinver

This superb linear cross-country walk heads right through the wild heart of Assynt, passing between its remarkable mountains. The walk as described assumes transport will be arranged but there is also an infrequent bus service.


Path or track for almost whole route; indistinct and boggy at times. Outflow of Lochan Fada may be tricky to cross in spate.

Public Transport

Infrequent buses from Ullapool serve the start of the walk, and also Lochinver which is 2km from the end.


Footpath sign / parking spot on A835 between Elphin and Ledmore junction. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
