Need Help?

Useful contacts if things go wrong!


In an emergency situation the Police, Ambulance and Fire & Rescue Services should be contacted by making a 999 call. There are parts of the Affric Kintail Way where mobile phone signals are either poor or non existent. In this situation if an emergency arises try to attract the attention of other route users or make your way to the nearest public road or dwellimg to raise the alarm. Highlanders are known for their hospitality towards visitors and willingness to help those in need of help.


In non-emergency situations Police Scotland can be contacted by calling 101 from both land lines and mobile phones. The system automatically works out the callers location and routes the call accordingly.
