Take the road to Ullapool, park at Tir Aluinn Hotel tp find parking spot.

First 400m high, then branches off to the right by a gate a driveway, first steep, then the trail gradually narrowed to a path to 400 m.

Do not follow the path down Glen Douchary but head NNW across a col south-west of Meall na Moch-eirigh and descend to East Rhidorroch Lodge in Glen Achall.

Great views of several Munros, undulating lonely mountain landscape. Descend into Glen Achal, down to the lodge with the help of a ladder over a wall to a small suspension bridge, the path then leads through Glen Achall past Loch Achall to Ullapool. We hitchhiked the last 5km with a farmer's wife, which was not bad for us. Nice tour with great mountain scenery at the beginning and a comfortable way through the beautiful valley. From Ullapool (delicious fish and chips) back hitchhiking or bus to the starting point.

This journey begins and ends in Ullapool, where it all began. Follow the path (counter-clockwise) through the Braes of Ullapool, and then make your way back along the quarry road.
Even while getting from Ullapool to Braes of Ullapool involves some strenuous climbing, the effort is quickly compensated for by the breath-taking scenery, particularly Ben More Coigach and the Summer Isles.
You could park your bicycles at a bench located halfway along the single-track trail, and then continue on to Ullapool Hill to take in a vista that encompasses the entire surrounding area in all directions.
The descent to Loch Achall is not only tremendously exciting but also presents a worthy obstacle.
Following this, you will be rewarded with a pleasant drive through the estate and through the quarry, with views of Beinn Gobhlach as you make your way back to Ullapool via the quarry and the final few kilometres of the journey.
After that, the path will lead you on a picturesque tour through the village, along the river, and across the peninsula before bringing you to the camping area.
