The Loch Shiel Hotel is located in centre of the village of Acharacle, just over an hours drive away from Fort william and well situated to explore Ardnamurchan, Mull, The Small Isles and Lochaber.
An enjoyable walk following a gravelled track with good views of the hill lochan, Loch nan Lochan, and ascending to the reservoir at Glen Forslan. Fine hill scenery and the picturesque falls of Glenforslan make this a very pleasant walk. In addition, devil's bit scabious (Succisa patensis), scotch argus (Erebai aethiops) and orange peel fungus (Aleuria aurantia) are abundant in late summer. Some steep ascents and can be boggy in places. This is a 'there and back' walk.
Please refer to local walking guides for details.
