Knockan Crag trail

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This interpretative trail brings the geology of the Moine Thrust to life as the path climbs past the exposed rocks and up onto the top of the Knockan Crag. From here there are spectacular views over Assynt. The trail includes sculptures and poetry as well as places to sit and a treasure hunt for younger children.


Easy to follow trail with some sections of rocky steps. As the path climbs to the top of the crag it can be exposed and therefore waterproofs and good footwear are needed.

Public Transport

Very limited bus service from Ullapool.


Knockan Crag visitor centre on A837 just south of Elphin. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
