We just returned from our summer holidays in Scotland. Sunny and warm weather combined with an unspoilt and undisturbed peninsula made it an unforgettable trip.

Ardnamurchan's crater (Scottish Gaelic: ''Ard na Murchan'': land of the great seas) is a 50 square mile peninsula and contains an abundance of wildlife. Its remoteness is accentuated by the main access route being a single track road for much of its length.

Good to know:
Distance: 3 kms
Rate: easy
GPS-track available for download: no

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Our first walk, a very easy and short one, is a part of the Old School House Path, which starts just after you have passed the Sonachan hotel.

Why particularly that walk?
Because the whole north western corner of Ardnamurchan is a large "caldera" which is a crater left behind by a collapsed volcano. It is that crater that we wanted to see from a higher viewpoint and this track going slightly uphill takes you to the edge of the crater.
