A good vehicle track along the River Oykel makes early progress easy. 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 boggy grassy footpaths and a rough, pathless section at the head of Glen Oykel

Public Transport

Highland Council Dial-a-Bus service (must be prebooked) between Oykel Bridge and Lairg (for trains/scheduled buses); Inchnadamph is served by bus.
