The Alphabet Trail

  • The Alphabet Trail

Follow The Gaelic Alphabet Trail around a wee lochan (Lochan Na Dunaich) and into the Atlantic Oakwoods on the shores on Loch Sunart and learn about the Gaelic Language in this land of trees.  A great walk for spotting fritillary butterflies and for dragonfly stalking in the summer months.  If you are lucky enough you may catch sight of the rare Northern Emerald dragonfly, one of the jewels of Ardnamurchan.  This is an easy level walk around the lochan with options for woodland and upland extensions.  However, take care to avoid the mythical waterhorse/kelpie that inhabits Lochan Na Dunaich, which, according to local Scottish folklore, would lure children into the loch, never to be seen again.
