Enjoy the stillness and isolation of one of the last pockets of truly unspoilt Scotland.
Look out for red deer on the lower slopes and golden eagles soaring up high.
There’s a good choice of outdoor activities, including sea kayaking and conquering the iconic Five Sisters, a mountain ridge incorporating three Munros.
Seek out Cill Fhearchair, a 2,000-year-old standing stone and burial ground, and the nearby site of the Battle of Glen Shiel.
The sharp peaks of the Five Sisters dominate the horizon, while tucked away in a cleft of the glens lie the dizzying Falls of Glomach.
A network of trails will lead you up and around the mountains, lochs, glens and coastline. You’ll also find a multitude of other challenging outdoor activities to experience here – sea kayaking, climbing or high-intensity hill walking.
Meanwhile, photographers and artists will fall head over heels for vistas that bring together the most iconic features of the Highlands.
The best place to begin exploring the wilderness of Kintail & Morvich is at the Countryside Centre at Morvich, just off the A87, which is unstaffed but has parking and an information board. There are low-level walks, particularly around Gleann Lichd and the coast, which are suitable for families.
Dogs should be kept under control and on a lead when livestock are present.
From April to September, our rangers offer a variety of guided walks, including easy-going 2 hour woodland and coastal rambles, as well as sea kayaking taster days and intensive courses.
If you’re looking for a more challenging adventure, take our ranger-led Five Sisters of Kintail walk. It’s not for the faint-hearted but will give you the chance to bag three Munros in one day and learn about mountain wildlife.
School groups can be accommodated at the Outdoor Centre at Morvich, with environmental education and activities provided by the Kintail Ranger Service (tel: 01599 511231).
The walks and trails at Kintail & Morvich are not suitable for wheelchairs.
Kintail is 16 miles east of Kyle of Lochalsh, to the north of the A87.
