About Achnashellach (North)
Achnashellach Forest covers the lower slopes of the hills on both sides of the glen near Achnashellch. It is a mix of planted, conifer forest - mainly on the north side of the glen - and Caledonian pinewoods - found in areas on the south side.
This is a very remote and dramatic area with a landscape of rugged mountain, Highland loch, stark moorland and forest.
There are informal walks in the forest on either side of the road. Some head up to the hills and others are the start of remote long-distance walks.
How to get there:
Achnashellach, Craig, Lochcarron, and Achnasheen are the nearest towns or villages.
Achnashellach forest is on both sides of the A890 near Achnashellach.
There is a very limited bus service that runs about three days per week between Inverness and Loch Carron which stops at Achnashellach.
