Polloch and Loch Shiel

Venture into the wilds of Sunart and head out on the wee yellow road from Strontian, through Scotstown, over the hills, the steep steep hills, and down into Polloch.  The road is steep and bendy, though worth the journey as it takes you into the wild depths of Sunart and Moidart.  There is a lovely Forestry Commission walk from a small car park at Polloch taking you to the shores of Loch Shiel where you can look for eagles, otters and divers as well as stopping for a picnic on a particulary well positioned bench overlooking Loch Shiel (we always do).  You can also cycle along the forest road on the shores of Loch Shiel all the way to Glenfinnan and beyond, or walk to to the Corrantee Lead mines from the shores of Loch Doilet.
