Winter Walking on the Trails at Abriachan

I posted a few months ago about the wonderful walks at Reelig Glen and Abriachan. Well, yesterday I took the dogs to Abriachan in the snow and we did one of the many loops. We took just over 2 hours to do it, pausing for the odd photograph. There was snow on the ground, bright blue skies, not a cloud in sight. There are amazing views from start to finish but the half way point gives a breath taking panorama. We can see Strathfarrar, the Mullardoch Munros and Glen Affric.

Sadly at this point, the battery in my iPhone ran out and I couldn’t take any pictures! So this morning, we hurried back while the sun was out to try and capture the beauty of this wonderful place in the sun. We drove further down the track this time, so did a shorter loop in about 45 minutes. Here are some of the photos I took today – not such a bright sky but still looking wonderful.

Abriachan is definitely worth a visit – there are a host of different walks of varying lengths and difficulty. The main car park itself has picnic tables, toilets, a workshop that holds art and woodland craft sessions, a children’s play area, peace path, Loch Laird to take in bird watching and some wonderful wooden creations and sculptures.
