Walking

Bohenie Lodges are the ideal base for a walking holiday in Scotland. The walks in the Fort William & Lochaber area are so numerous and so beautiful and safe at low levels that we find many guests need no encouragement and a guide is not necessary. For walking information and routes for the Fort William area, see www.walkhighlands.co.uk

Personal guided walks can be arranged during your stay, often at short notice, these may be low-level or hill walks. Ron has over 30 years experience working on the Scottish hills, contact us for an informal chat. We don’t do moutaineering or rock-climbing but if high-level excitement is what you crave, we can put you in contact with several professional mountain guides in the area.


We’ll mention just a few easy walks close to our self-catering holiday accommodation that don’t need transport, pictures 1-4 on the left top to bottom are of each walk.


Walk 1

From the lodges it is an easy quiet walk of 1.5 miles to the village where you can find a small shop, post office, hotel, pub, railway station and bus stop. This walk is along a single track road with a tarmac surface, there is very little traffic as the road only serves approximately 5 houses,  Along the entire length the road follows the south bank of the River Roy and for the most part there are birch, hazel, alder and oak woods to either side.


Walk 2

From the lodges a ¼ mile long grassy / muddy path leads under trees down to the shore of the River Roy.


Walk 3

Going uphill from the lodges a gravel track leads for several miles gently uphill through more open countryside with stunning views up Glen Roy. The track leads eventually to a small stream and beyond into a forestry plantation. This would probably be the daily walk of choice for dog-owners!


Walk 4

A historic walk from the crofting hamlet of Bohenie follows an old “coffin route” over a low hill-pass to the beautiful and ancient chapel of
Cille Choirill.  The path climbs SE from the farm keeping the forestry plantation on the left to reach a height of about 250 metres over a distance of 2.5km (1¾ miles) before arriving at the chapel at NN307813 where there are breathtaking views.  This walk can be extended to take in the small suspension bridge over the Monessie Gorge on the River Spean at NN299811.  For both walks, the return can be along the same route or by following the main A86 road back (to the pub?) at Roy Bridge Village.
