FOREST WAY WALKS No3

This is part three of an ongoing collection of walks which can be done directly from us.

In recent years some of the local estates and forestry commission have been investing a great deal of time and money to help improve an ever increasing number of good standard paths and tracks.  So now there are a quite a number of walks with varying terrain and difficulty all on our doorstep and I hope to showcase these all in the coming months.

Trip Advisor Reviews

      Drove past Forest Way after coming down from a three day wild camp. Had a room to ourselves. Each room has 4 beds & its own shower room. Warm, comfortable & has a great drying room. Found Iain a social host without being overbearing. Thanks...More

      Stayed in the bunkhouse with my wife and 2 friends on a cycling/munro-bagging trip in May. The bunkhouse is fairly small with 2 x 4 bed en-suite rooms with a central kitchen. It's fairly basic but nothing wrong with it. The location is nice and it's in a real sun trap in a sheltered valley. A special mention must go to ian, the owner, who is very friendly and helpful.

      Iain is very friendly and uncomplicated and we had a nice chat over breakfast (which was delicious). We enjoyed the night in the Forest Way B&B, as it was very quiet, the beds were comfortable and the wi-fi was also good! We just stayed for one night as we were travelling around, but this is a place where you could easily stay longer!

    Thank you very much Iain!

      We stayed in the B&B part of the house with a separate entrance. Breakfast you take at the owners dinnertable, wich is sympa. The place is nice, family friendly, has a garden and compared to other B&B a bargain.

    review rating 5  Great little bunkhouse in a very convenient location for bagging loads of Munros and Corbetts :). Comfortable beds, a decent kitchen and an effective drying room. I've stayed a couple of times and will certainly return. Iain (the owner) is also an invaluable source of advice on hill routes.

    review rating 5  I've stayed here twice now. It's a fine wee bunkhouse, comfortable beds, good showers and ideally located for plenty of local hills, with the Fannichs, Deargs and An Teallach in easy reach, and not too long a drive to get into those lovely Assynt hills. The owner is a keen walker and has a lot of excellent local knowledge. You also get a free beer. Highly recommended 🙂

    review rating 5  Me and 2 friends bunked here for 1 night. Lovely little place surrounded by forests, very peaceful. You can hear the water flowing nearby which creates a tranquil environment. The owner, Ian is a lovely man. His family is also on the site who are also lovely people. The communal area in the bunkhouse was spacious and offered everything you need. Each guest room has an en suite with 4 bunks in each room. You can also rent these rooms so if you're with a small group you can create a private area. If I ever do the nc500 again I will stay here!

    review rating 5  Iain and his dad were some of the nicest people we met on our trip through and round Scotland we couldn't have asked for more! The room we stayed in we paid a little extra for to book it out, it was very clean and tidy with a lovely drive area to sit outside. The area around this site should be considered an area of outstanding natural beauty. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in the area!
