    Route Description for Craig Dunain Walk

    If you’re staying in Inverness, the Craig Dunain Walk makes for a great in-between adventure—sandwich it between two intense walking days! However, despite its short length, the scenery won’t disappoint. You’ll likely spend most of the walk secluded in the woods among sweeping woodland views. And, you can expect to get your heart rate up as you’ll climb a moderate amount of elevation in just a few kilometres.

    Setting out from your car, you’ll follow the pond towards the path heading outward. From here, keep straight until you reach a junction, where the trail goes both left and right. You can choose to go either way, but our route takes you right. Shortly after, you’ll reach some switchbacks. Then, you’ll continue circling through the woodland scenery.

    Eventually, you’ll get to the same path you came in on, but walk by this path and take the next trail going right to take a different route back to the pond, where your car awaits.
