Walks near Dundonnell - Gruinard to Fisherfield

These pictures were taken in mid October during a walk from Gruinard Bay up towards Fisherfield. The great advantage in visiting the Scottish Highlands in the autumn, winter and spring months is that there are few tourists and the ones you meet take the time out to speak to you. We spent several happy hours walking along the path running next to the River Gruinard up toward Fisherfield and An Teallach. Please note that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times - and due to this I had to take several of these photographs with one hand only and the other one was "trying" to keep two of my dogs in one place - and they had other ideas such as getting to the end of the walk.

The access to this walk is just across the bridge that crosses over the River Gruinard at Gruinard Bay. You can park by the side of the road near the bridge. The gate is locked, you will find that a pedestrian entrance is next to the vehicle gate.

The walk is along a track used by the estate and while it is easy to walk along it can be fairly wet underneath especially after heavy rain, so even if you are just out for a stroll make sure to wear good sturdy shoes or preferably walking or hiking boots.

The scenery is wonderful. Along the walk we watched a couple of eagles flying overhead, it's is amazing that they can see their potential prey from such heights, yet they do and are renowned for the ability to see very long distances.

In one of the pools a number of salmon jumped including one that must have been in the 20 pound mark. The River Gruinard is definitely a permit only river so don't try the quick cast.

We walked for around about 2-3 hrs, the walk does go a lot further than we managed and is well worth the effort to make it a whole day trip.


Scotland Hillwalking with Caledonia Hilltreks is a  professionally run business operated by Lindsay Boyd.

Kintail & Lochalsh walks guide for information and books on the area.

Another activity website well worth a visit called Go Further Scotland and is about organised adventure holidays in Scotland.

You will an article on walks in Fisherfield by Lindsay that will give far more detail than our web page.

For photographs of this area and other Scottish Mountains including some amazing panoramic images then check a Scottish Photo Gallery by Gavin Shaw.

I do hope that we have inspired you to visit us so that you can enjoy these hills and mountains for yourself.
