It is a beautiful sunny day when we, together with Sue & Stewart of Homefarm B&B, go for a walk in the glen of Strathconon. As we have to cross a river this is not a good walk when it has rained a lot or when it is raining (difficult to predict ofcourse in Scotland)

Good to know:
Distance: 9 kms
Rate: easy (a bit of stone climbing when crossing the river)
Map (incl. elevation information): Strathconon walk
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always photo's (but not all of them) can be enlarged by clicking on them.

First you will have to drive to the end of the glen, where there is a parkinglot. Here you have a lovely view over Loch Bennacharian.

Walk along the loch and past the estate mansion. We spotted a herd of deers and ofcourse other wildlife.....

After 10 days on beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula, we head for the area of Inverness and stay at the Homefarm B&B of our co-authors in Muir of Ord. In this area we make some lovely and not too complicated walks. The first is to the area of Culbin Forest near Nairn (East of Inverness)

Good to know:
Distance: 11 kms
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Culbin Forest - Hill 99 Viewpoint Trail
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always photo's (but not all of them) can be enlarged by clicking on them.

The walk starts at a huge parking where there are toilet facilities and there you can also pick up a leaflet of the area . The track is well-marked and is called Hill 99 viewpoint trail, although we did a small detour along the waterfront.

First you will come across these Gravel-pit Ponds, which were dugged to provide a source of fresh water for birds, mammals and insects.

The track continous through the forest and after a while you will be at the base of

oh oh.... we are running behind with our walks. Too much sunny weather here in the Netherlands for the last couple of weeks. It was the fact that Elgar started complaining about inactivity of the HikingMoose website, that made me crawl behind the computer.

This is a walk uphill to the top of Ben Hiant, the highest hill on Ardnamurchan. The track is not difficult and you will be rewarded with lovely views over the whole of Ardnamurchan.

Good to know:
Distance: 6 kms (up and down)
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Ben Hiant walk
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always photo's (but not all of them) can be enlarged by clicking on them.

On your way up, also take time to look over your shoulders. Lovely panoramic views everywhere.

The path is easy to follow, but can be boggy when it has rained a lot. On the left picture you can see the top of Ben Hiant. On the right picture some views to the land down below.

At the top of Ben Hiant the views are awesome. Particularly when the sun is shining and the sky is clear, but it can be windy though.
