Peat track Walk. Clachtoll – Stoer

I thought it would be a good opportunity to look back on last year. With plenty work always going on this lovely Autumn afternoon walk was a great few hours gentle stretch of the legs.

Clachtoll to Stoer via their peat tracks.

A beautiful 6 mile circular walk through the old peat cuttings with amazing views at every corner.

Leaving from the chalets I will take you along the road going left through Clachtoll, up the wee steep hill leaving the hamlet until you see the sign for the peat track on your left.
There is a clear cart track with stunning views and looking closely the peat cuttings even though now disused and filled with regrowth of heather are still clear to see. If you are lucky you may spot some red deer on the hills.

The path splitting the loch in two, approaching Stoer

The track tapers down further on and narrows into a small path. As you swing round to the left you can clearly seen wooden posts direct the way through this pretty boggy part of the route.
The path goes sharply down briefly to some of the small lochs at the back of Stoer before flattening out and  rejoining the Stoer track.
You wander along until you come out behind the small group of houses approximatly half a mile beyond the main hamlet of Stoer.
Once you join the tarred road turn left and enjoy the views until you reach the chalets once again. Image may contain: mountain, sky, cloud, nature and outdoor
The route can of course be done the opposite way too. I was in no hurry, savouring the fresh air and freedom. This walk would make a lovely half day wander. A gentle walk, mainly flat with just one very brief steep point.

A short diversion to catch the view from the highest point
