Ardnastaing and Scotstown Walk

A lovely circular walk over moorland, woodland and along the banks of the Strontian River to Scotstown and Ardnastaing.  The walk provides a good opportunity to enjoy the fauna and flora associated with deciduous and coniferous woodland, heath land and riparian habitats.  The ground flora is particular lovely in Spring and Summer, with range of spring woodland  flowers and, later in the year, a resplendence of orchids and the heath flora.

Park in the small parking area on the road past the Ben View Hotel, or start from Strontian Village Centre.  You can also take the walk to The Corantee lead Mines from Ardnastaing following the well defined path over the craggy hills of Sunart to the old mine workings dating from the 1860s. Another interesting and scenic walk for a fine day.
