A selection of seasonal walks in Moidart
Here are twelve splendid walks specially chosen to complement a particular time of a year.  Of course, you can do the walks at any season, but some walks are better done at the suggested time because of local conditions, such as summer bracken growth.

Each walk should take less than four hours: the length of Highland walks has little relevance - time is a more important factor.

The maps on this site only show a representation of each walk, and the walks should not be attempted without the relevant Ordnance Survey map (Explorer 390, 1:25000, covers all these walks) and a compass. Please take note of all the precautions mentioned on the Walking page.   Remember that you are responsible for your own safety at all times and that we cannot be held responsible for any injury, damage or loss which might happen if you follow one of these walks.
