Directions

How to get here

Parking:

Blairmore has parking and toilets and note that there is no access for vehicles to the Sandwood Bay track.

Foot:

The Sandwood Bay track from Blairmore is about 4 miles long. Parts are uneven and usually wet underfoot. It crosses exposed moorland and there's no shelter. Allow at least 90 minutes each way. There are many other good walks, such as the hills to the east of the estate, and Strath Shinary between Gualin House and Sandwood Bay. A path to Strathan crosses from the Polin peat road east of Oldshorebeg.
