Weekend hiking in Strathfarrar and east Monar

Designated a National Nature Reserve in 1977, Glen Strathfarrar is a quiet place, virtually traffic free and very beautiful. A gate at the head of the glen restricts visitors to a small number, therefore calmness is guaranteed and wildlife is plentiful !
