Walks and Mountains


There are over 40 Munros around Ferry House, and countless other hills and low level walks no less beautiful and rewarding.

Nearby classic hill walks include the famous Five Sisters and the South Shiel Ridge, the more technical challenges of the Saddle and the Skye Cuillins—and the dramatic outlines and views of Ladhar Bheinn in Knoydart and Beinn Sgritheall above Arnisdale.

Many of the lower, less famous hills are also rewarding and have spectacular views from their summits: for example, Ben Aslak, just across the water, and Sgurr an Airgid near Morvich. By the sea and in the glens, there are walks ranging from short strolls to strenuous hikes of twenty miles or more. One of our favourites is the walk on the Isle of Rasaay to the top of Dun Caan.
