Oykel Bridge to Inchnadamph
A good vehicle track along the River Oykel makes early progress easy, allowing for maximum enjoyment of this picturesque salmon fishing river. Continue into wild Benmore Forest and ascend to the narrow bealach below rugged Conival and Ben More Assynt before dropping down to the amenities of Inchnadamph on the shore of Loch Assynt.
Excellent vehicle tracks for much of the distance, but also faint grassy footpaths and a rough, pathless section at the head of Glen Oykel
Macleod's Dial-a-Bus service (must be prebooked) between Oykel Bridge and Lairg (for trains/scheduled buses); Inchnadamph is served by bus.
