A fantastic range of outdoor activities is available at Lochan Torr and in the surrounding area

The area around Lochan Torr provides access to some of the best outdoor activities in Great Britain amid spectacular scenery in some of the most remote areas of the country.

There is superb walking, scrambling and climbing, with the mountains of Knoydart visible from Lochan Torr Woodlands itself and many Munros within an hour’s driving distance.

There are opportunities to cycle and mountain bike, kayak and canoe (on the sea, rivers, lochs and Caledonian canal), raft, go gorge walking, canyoning or abseiling and, in the Winter months, to ski and snowboard.  Scheduled dam releases give guaranteed white water on the River Garry.  Many outdoor activities providers operate in the area and provide trips, guiding and instruction and equipment hire.
