Glen Shiel has some of the most rugged mountain scenery in the Scottish Highlands and there are over 20 Munros within easy reach of Kintail Lodge.
The Saddle is one of the finest mountains in the area and its long ridge, known as the Forcan Ridge, must be one of the most exhilarating in the country. The North and the South Glen Shiel Ridges offer excellent, challenging days out for the experienced walker but most famous of them all is the Five Sisters of Kintail – a truly classic walk with picture postcard views and their western flanks that rise for over 1000m in one fell swoop.
For the less serious walker, the Falls of Glomach, one of the highest waterfalls in Britain at 310 ft, offers a nice day out with a good chance of seeing golden eagles and deer. These are just a few of the many high- and low-level walks in the area.
