Bone caves to Traligill Caves and Inchnadampf

This walk takes you up the beautiful limestone valley of the Allt nan Uamh (Burn of the Caves) to the famous Bone Caves. Here the bones of bears, reindeer and wolves have been discovered. Once in a time, these majestic animals roamed in this part of the country.

From the Caves, we make our way up towards the foot of Breabag, from here we turn north walking pathless towards Inchnadampfh.

Another stunning limestone landscape opens up in front of us. The valley called Traligill named by the Norsemen, meaning valley of the Trolls. We explore this part for a bit before finishing off at the walker’s car park in Inchnadamph.

Culnacraig to Blughasary via the Postie Path

Kenneth McLennan of Blairbuie normally walked this route twice a week with the mail. The postal service got established in the 1860s and called a’Gabhail na Creige – taking the rock.

This was the sole route to travel on land from Achilitibuie to Ullapool unit the circular road around the north was built. At the meeting stone above Achilitibuie churchgoers and cattle drovers would meet.

Once ready they would ‘take the rock’ to head south towards Clachan Church at the edge of Loch Broom or the markets further south.

The ‘Postie`s Path’ is not for the fainthearted but has been slowly being restored to make the walk easier to navigate with some stone markers to show the way.

Walk details: 6.2 miles, 10 km – Ascent 270 m, Descent 380 m – Walking time 3 – 4 h

Walks around Ullapool

Loch toll an Lochain, a Corrie not to miss

Toll an Lochain is one of the most splendid corries in Scotland, the loch is enclosed by the sawtoothed pinnacles of An Teallach, this fabled mountain is perhaps the most impressive in Britain.

It doesn`t come lightly, and the approach is not always straightforward yet archivable for most. It comes with a vast reward once the steep-sided rock faces come into view.

We spent our lunch at the loch with magnificent views towards the Corrie admiring the brave who tackle the ridge. Once rested we find our way through another off-path section towards our descent track to Corrie Hallie.

A short drive away we can enjoy An Teallach beer from the local brewery in the Dundonnell Hotel before returning to Ullapool.

Walk details: 7 miles, 11 km – Ascent 500 m, Descent 500 m- Walking time 3.5 – 4 h

Walks around Ullapool

Little Assynt to Elphin

This superb linear cross-country walk heads right through the wild heart of Assynt, passing between Canisp and Suliven.

Assynt in the far North West of Scotland is literally jaw-dropping, the landscape is so outstanding and different that you’d think you’d travelled to another planet.

We start the walk from Little Assynt towards Suileag Bothy. Here we can feel the remoteness which is unique to this area with a stunning view towards Suliven.

Once rested we walk south-west past the approach path for mighty Suliven towards Loch an Gainimh. The going from now will change more into a narrow path rockier and rockier.

Walk details: 12 miles, 19.5 km – Ascent 350 m, Descent 280 m – Walking time 6 h

Walks around Ullapool

Along the Coffin Road to Clachan Church

Two Hundred years ago this route was the main overland route connecting two coastal communities.

Clachan Church was its main church the route over the hill from Dundonnell is sometimes referred to as the ‘Kirk road’ or ‘Coffin road’. The present church was built in 1817 near to its predecessor from 1793.

The route crosses high hill-ground and can be a difficult undertaking when the weather is coming in. Your effort will be well rewarded with breathtaking views over mighty An Teallach, the Fannichs and the two Loch Brooms.

Walk details: 6.5 miles, 10 km – Ascent 400 m, Descent 450 m – Walking time 3.5 h

Walks around Ullapool

Ben More Coigach from West to East

Ben More Coigach dominates the landscape north of Ullapool and it`s long, table shaped summit plateau is an ideal mountain to master in a day.

The best route is a linear route to experience all the features this striking mountain has to offer. With 743 metres (2438 ft) it seems fairly straightforward. But this walk is steep in places, off-path offers some airy ridges (can be bypassed if needed).

The views are worth this effort and there are not many better days out than this to the north of Ullapool. To the north and east side, you have the lonely giants of Assynt and to the west and south, you have the mighty mountain chains of the Fisherfields, Fannichs and An Teallach.

Walk details: 7 miles, 11 km – Ascent 620 m, Descent 730 m – Walking time 4h
