Many shorter routes are community Core Paths designated and maintained by the local Council. These routes are usually marked and signposted. Other walks use old Rights of Way that provided vital links between communities before the advent of car travel. The upland routes often follow stalking paths, built in the 19th century to provide access for deer shooting and retrieval by horse. Some sections are rough and pathless. Nearly all routes described are circular to facilitate car users. More experienced hill-walkers can go beyond the bounds of these walks to enjoy the magnificent mountains of the area. We have nine Munros (peaks over 3,000 feet high) and eight Corbetts (hills over 2,500 feet high) within a 10 mile radius of Lochcarron.
