Walking and Cycling in and around Acharacle

If you have travelled to our area to sample the outdoors then there any number of walking and cycling routes which can be followed.

A good guide is to look at the Walk Highlands web site and select your options from there.

Within Walk Highlands you will note mention of the Sunart Oakwoods which will give you details of woodland walks within the oakwoods, within a local RSPB reserve and within a National Nature Reserve. There are also details of wild walks with appropriate guidance and advice.

Some excellent cycling routes are also described within a leaflet which also contains a map  

For those of a less energetic ilk there is the option to spend an afternoon in a wildlife hide on the shores of Loch Sunart. The hide has a special easy access (small) car park for those with limited mobility and wheelchairs can be used from the car park to the hide. The general purpose car park, a little farther along the main Acharacle – Strontian route, contains picnic tables and a pathway to the hide through the woods. A map of the hide location can be found on the web site and a detailed list of wildlife sightings is recorded.
