SMG At Work - THe Affric Kintail Way

The Affric Kintail Way

The Affric Kintail Way was developed over a number of years by SMG in conjunction with our partner organisations Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) and the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) being fully signposted in autumn 2014 and officially opened in April the following year.

The AKW stretches some 44 miles from Drumnadrochit on the shores of Loch Ness, through Glens Urquhart, Affric & Lichd reaching the west at Kintail. The route is suitable for those on foot, mountain bike and horseback though we do stress care should be taken on some sections.
