Scottish Canoe Routes

Inverkirkaig to Bonar Bridge

via Loch Bad na Muirichinn and the Benmore Lodge track

This cross-Scotland route links the Inverpolly Wilderness with the River Oykel and the Kyle of Sutherland. The route given here avoids the usual portage up the Kirkaig River valley, and also the highly water-level-dependent Allt Eileag. A tough route, but with a fascinating variety of terrain; rocky ravines and falls, open lochs, challenging portages, and miles of river and tidal waters.
