Spean Bridge B&B takes a walk up Loch Arkaig side, Achnacarry, Lochaber

This week we had a wee walk along Loch Arkaig to Invermallie bothy.

It was a dry cool day and the views were fantastic. Starting at Achnacarry there is a very good path all the way and it only took about an hour to get to Invermallie. The bothy is maintained by the Bothy Association and they are doing a fine job with it. If you fancied a night in a bothy this one might be a good place to start.

On the walk you are virtually on the banks of Loch Arkaig which is huge and in some ways a hidden gem. The water was very calm at times making for some beautiful reflections of the mountains.

The main wildlife of the day were the frogs probably at least 12 spotted on the path.
