Inchnadamph to Kylestrome

Leaving Inchnadamph, the trail climbs to the remote pass at Bealach na h-Uidhe before descending to pass below Britain's highest waterfall and a tough pathless section to reach Glencoul bothy. A rough path climbs the shoulder to Loch Glendhu with spectacular views and Glendhu bothy before a long section of track brings you to Kylestrome which is a short walk from Kylesku which has a hotel (closed winter). Both bothies would make good overnight stops and there are wild camping options near these as well.


Rocky, moorland footpaths, indistinct and boggy in places, track for final section. Potentially tricky burn crossing.

Public Transport

Inchandamph has an infrequent bus link to Inverness - and Durness via Kylestrome.
