Loch Langaig

From here there is a walking route that passes Loch Langaig and Loch Hasco. Avoid the traffic and walk from here to visit the famous Quiraing.

It was originally an old cart track used by crofters to collect their peats and is still used to gather sheep from the hill grazings.

There is a good and clear path past the two Lochs of Langaig and Hasco. Continue this route and you have the option to join the walk around the Quiraing via the summit of Meall na Suiramach.

Distance: 11km/7 miles Time: 3 hours return

Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous walk. Bring a map, compass, warm, wind/waterproof clothing and hillwalking boots.

There is a small car park just north of the start of this walking route.

Remember the weather can change quickly here.
