This list is ongoing and we would appreciate comments and updates.

Please avoid attempting a more ambitious walk than you are confident you can manage in the time and conditions. You should consider such factors as

  1. The length of the walk.
  2. The gain/loss of altitude involved.
  3. The weather.
  4. The terrain
  5. Your level of experience and fitness.

We are always happy to give advice on any aspect of walking on Knoydart.
Please let us know where you intend to go.

The following grades are an attempt to indicate the type of  terrain only, not an indication of how long they will take, as this can vary a great deal on the day. Please discuss the time factor with us before your days walk.

Grade 1. Road or rough track capable of taking a vehicle.
Grade 2. Rough, uneven or steep, but with well defined path.
Grade 3. Faint or intermittent path over rough, steep or boggy ground.
Grade 4. No path. Ground steep, exposed or hard walking.
Grade 5. No path. Including steep and exposed rocky scrambles. Not recommended in poor visibility or high winds.


None of the routes (except the ascent of  Stob a Chearcaill on Ladhar Bheinn) listed require any actual rock climbing.
