Explore Scotland's most beautiful glen.

Glen Affric Circuit & viewpoint

Often referred to as ‘the most beautiful glen in Scotland’ , no visit to the area is complete without at least driving up to the Glen Affric car park and walking up to the lodge.

However, for the keen walker there is a 11 mile circuit (4-6 hours) of Loch Affric which lets you experience the true splendour of the area, with towering snow -capped mountains and along the side of the path the remnants of ancient Caledonian forest dating back thousands of years. Take a packed lunch and stop at Strawberry Cottage to admire the views.  

Start your walk at the River Affric car park at the end of the minor road leading to Glen Affric (pay and display car park).

If you are not wanting to complete the longer circuit walk, there are options to do the shorter viewpoint walk or river side walk. You will find the details of these on the notice boards at the car park.

The nearest refreshments available are in the villages of Cannich and Tomich.
