About River Affric Walk
Although short, the River Affric is a very beautiful walk. It takes you along the banks of the river as it tumbles down from Loch Affric to Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin.
In one section, the path goes on top of the rocks beside a bend in the river. The force of the rapids here can be seen in the erosion of the banks and tree roots nearby.
There are also some very pretty views overlooking and along this walk.
Dippers and grey wagtails can be spotted along this walk. Otters feed here too but are rarely seen.
For full details of the glen please see our main Glen Affric pages.
How to get there:
From either Beauly or Drumnadrochit, take the A831 to Cannich, then the unclassified road signposted Glen Affric.
After two miles, at the Fasnakyle power station, turn right to Glen Affric. The River Affric carpark is ten miles along this road.
There is an infrequent bus service from Inverness as far as Cannich.
