Here’s a lovely, continuous route leading from the Beauly Firth at Inverness, via Loch Ness, the hidden village of Tomich and through the length of Glen Affric to Loch Duich on the west coast; a trek along one of Scotland’s most varied and spectacular crossings. As you stay in one of the country’s remotest hostels, minimal lightweight backpacking is required for two days to let you really savour Glen Affric’s wild sanctuary.


Minibus from and back to Stirling and throughout (except end of day five and beginning of day six).

Our partners C-N-Do Scotland. Partnership working for over 30 years.

In early 1984, Margaret Porter and Dorothy Breckenridge established C-N-Do Scotland. Combining years of experience and eternal enthusiasm for the Scottish outdoors and the philosophy of Goethe inspired us to share our enthusiasm for and love of the wildlife, natural beauty and landscapes of Scotland. If we "can do these walks then just about anyone can do them as well" - and so it has been proved by the many hundreds and hundreds we have introduced to this lifelong addiction (but a healthy one mind you!).
