NOTICE TO WALKERS BE AWARE

Forestry tracks

Over the last couple of years, forestry workings throughout the Glenelg Peninsula have led to the addition of many new forestry tracks and more will be added in the future with further planned workings. These are too new and often too small to be noted on OS maps or GPS mapping devices and may lead to confusion when starting your walk or when you come across unexpected paths while walking.

 

Sandaig

This is an easy and very popular walk to a stunning location but there have been new tracks laid over the last couple of years that branch off the main Sandaig track. Some online website descriptions are now out of date and can be confusing. Take local advice if in doubt.

 

Sandaig Coastal Path

Please note: THERE IS NO COASTAL PATH FROM SANDAIG TO GLENELG!!

Walking along the coast from Sandaig to Glenelg eventually becomes impassable when you meet cliffs that drop directly into deep water. Darkness falling before walkers could return has resulted in two recent call outs for the Glenelg Mountain Rescue Team. If you do decide to walk along this stretch of coast be aware you will have to return via the normal track.

 

In all cases when walking on the hills,

give yourself ample time to get back before darkness falls.
