News and Information Updates on the Affric Kintail Way

Return to News main page.

Diversion on AKW due to forestry operation.

FCS advise work has been completed and the diversion sign etc have been removed.


Tree felling work will commence within the next few weeks affecting a section of the Affric Kintail Way in Glenurquhart between Drumnadrochit and Balnain.  We don’t have a definite start date.  The work is expected to continue throughout the winter months.

There are 2 diversion routes on the map section below – RED for walkers and YELLOW for cyclists.  To quote FCS – the diversion is boggy and rough in places, around 2km longer and climbs an extra 150m from Drumnadrochit direction and 120m from Balnain direction.

It will be fully signposted.  We will be updating the News page and Facebook when we receive any relevant information.
