Kirkton Heritage Trail

Starting close to a waterfall beside the A 837 near Inchnadamph this rather rough walk is a little under two miles long and takes in a cleared settlement perched on limestone ridges overlooking Loch Assynt before heading past an unusual series of small Bronze Age burnt mounds along a shallow valley to a roundhouse that may be contemporary with them.

From it there are extensive views down to a Neolithic Chambered cairn and various later ruins in the valley of the River Traligill and the route goes down to the valley before doubling back to the starting point .

There are steep and boggy sections.
