Best view points in Glen Affric

eilidh__cameroneilidh__cameron VisitScotland Ambassador ✭✭✭

I'm travelling up to Glen Affric at the beginning of next week and I'm looking for some information on the best view points? I really hope to catch the sunrise so any tips on the best place to catch that would be very much appreciated. Also just any other parts of the Glen you think I shouldn't miss. 

Thanks in advance :)

    Hi Eileidh,

    You have a lovely viewpoint on loch Affric that you can easily get to from 'loch Affric circuit car park'. The viewpoint is not marked on google maps but it is easy to find. You have a small trail uphill that starts on your right hand side just before you reach the car park. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the viewpoint from there. The panoramic view on Glen Affric is really nice. With the Automn colors, it should be beautiful.

    Hi @Smidge,

    I really wanted to do the circular walk but I had a bit of a cold/sore throat so thought it was maybe a wee bit too much but it looks stunning so I'll need to do that next time and stay longer so I can visit Glen Strathfarrar too, your photos of it look stunning!! :)
