A 38 mile circuit through one of the wilder parts of Lochaber.
A spectacular route taking you through one of the wilder parts of Lochaber, yet one that is easily accessible. From the Corran Ferry take the A861 soutwards signposted towards Strontian. The route initially winds along the coast before swinging westwards and climbing up Glen Tarbert before dropping down to the head of Loch Sunart. Turn left at the head of the loch onto the Lochaline road which after a short level stretch round the head of the loch climbs up through the forest. After a climb of almost 300m there's a short downhill to the junction with the B8043. Turn left here and follow the road down the glen to Kingairloch.
Beyond Kingairloch the road undulates along the coast with some impressive cliffs above in places until you rejoin the A861 at the foot of Glen Tarbert. There are some great views over Loch Linnhe to the Isle of Lismore and the hills south of Ballachulish and if the conditioins are right a more distant view up the loch to Ben Nevis.
