The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Absolutely stunning views of the loch and a prime location for exploring the island. Loved our stay. The new ablution block is great, with lovely showers and washing up areas. Felt peaceful from the moment we arrived. Well worth the money.

Just got back from an amazing week away staying at the Kinloch Campsite. Would highly recommend. Stunning views and within walking distance of Dunvegan Castle. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Friendly and helpful owners who gave great advice on local garages when our car ran into trouble. Very clean facilities, great showers!
