Road Trip Scotland Day 7 – hike around Loch Maree

Hi there, my road trip in Scotland is almost coming to end, but it’s my favourite day of all that I’m sharing with you! The nature around the Loch Maree is unbelievable: the reflexion of the mountains in the loch, the forests where you can discover marvelous view points, and especially this silence, which brings a pure feeling of serenity! And of course, I must add: hiking under a beautiful sun and 20 degrees!

I did two walks during this day:

  • The first one was on the edge of Loch Maree. It starts at Slattadale and makes a loop of about 2 hours . Overall this hike is very simple since it’s flat, with the exception of one or two rides.
  • The second, called the Woodland Trail, offers a nice walk in the forest. It’s a little harder because you have to climb, but shorter with about 1h-1h30 walk. It’s located just a few minutes from Slattadale, and starts at the parking lot “Coille na Glas Letire Trails”

I drove the rest of the day since I had to go back south and reach Fort William to spend the night. My accommodation was ok, but nothing special, so I’d rather not sharing it. I only want to give you the good deals!

Besides if you had some good tips about Scotland that I didn’t mention, please leave a comment below the article, and share your story with the community.
