Location:-
Kinlochewe is about 50 miles from Inverness, via the A835 initially, then turning off onto the A832 signposted to Gairloch. Taking the first road to the right (signposted Incheril) leads to a carpark which is the starting point for the Kinlochewe Forest route.

Description:-
Kinlochewe, a small village at the head of Loch Maree, is a good base for exploring Wester Ross. The Kinlochewe Forest route starts from the doorstep and many other routes (including the epic Torridon loop) are within a 10-20 mile radius.

There is a small shop in the village and excellent food and drink, as well as hotel or bunkhouse accommodation, can be found at the Kinlochewe Hotel (see link opposite).

Did this following a fair bit of rain but in otherwise good weather in October. The ride up to Lochan Fada is quick and easy and unless you're a glutton for punishment I'd recommend turning back there... read whole comment...

Nice riding to Lochan Fada, then a bit ferocious... Water levels v. high & rivers all in spate, but the only one that caused any real bother was a tiny burn flowing down from Meall Each which was abs... read whole comment...

Description:-
This trail begins with a straightforward climb to Heights of Kinlochewe, heads round by Lochan Fada, then returns to Loch Maree via a technical singletrack descent through Gleann Bianasdail.

There are a couple of river crossings so this route may not be suitable after very heavy rain.

The route:

From the carpark, turn left to climb up the hill via the track that runs parallel to the river.

Where the road forks at Heights of Kinlochewe (tag 1), bear left and follow this trail as it narrows and leads towards Lochan Fada. Ignore the path to the right (tag 2) shortly after the bridge.

As you reach Lochan Fada, the trail deteriorates and the ground may be boggy in places. At the foot of the lochan, bear South, crossing the river you have been following (tag 3), then another (tag 4) slightly further round the SE shore.

Shortly after this second crossing, the trail begins to descend into the steep-sided glen, becoming more established as it does so. Simply follow this path down until you reach Loch Maree.

Upon meeting the lochside path (tag 5), turn left over the bridge and continue along this trail until you reach the carpark again.
