'spend time in the other hills
and glens,
with lochs and waterfalls
'
The beautiful and remote peninsula of Knoydart is flanked by Loch Hourn (Loch of Hell) to the north and Loch Nevis (Loch of Heaven) to the south. The mountainous interior hosts stunning ridgewalks, track-based walking as well as the three Munros - Luinne Bheinn, Meall Buidhe and Ladhar Bheinn.

Whilst some come to bag the most westerly mainland Munro, Ladhar Bheinn, many return to spend time in the other hills and glens, with lochs and waterfalls. Red deer roam the hills along with feral goats (introduced from Jura) and black-faced sheep.



The re-establishment of native woodlands is being carried out by Knoydart Forest Trust - a local charity - which has recently created some beautiful woodland walks in the Inverie Woods behind the village. Gentler walks around Knoydart's fringe of beautiful beaches are a delight for seeing coastal birds, seals and otters as well as the plants and flowers along the coastline.
