peninsular from Cuildarrach
first attempt at this walk was in torrential rain and the first
uphill part was mostly like walking up waterfalls. The second
attempt, in good weather, was a dream. The end of the walk is
a real treat, bringing you through an unexpectedly pretty wood
which opens out to a verdant swathe of land leading to the bay
with its broad vista of Eigg and Rhum and south to the Ardnamurchan
were a number of small communities on this peninsular in the
past, the remains of which can be seen if you venture off the
main track at various points. There are still locals living
in the area who were brought up at Peanmanach.
popular, moderate walk starting at car park on the left near
Polnish (2 miles north of Lochailort on A82 - MultiMap).
west from the car park, past Polnish House and over the railway
track climbs up and around the lochans, with views west to
Eigg, Rhum and Skye, and north over Loch nan Uamh. It leads
down through woods down to the much loved and frequented Peanmeanach
bothy at the picturesque bay on the west end of the peninsular.

long it takes depends on how many detours you are tempted
into and how long you lie on the beach soaking up the sun, or
brewing up in the bothy at the far end. Could be done in a 3
hour round trip if you need to rush.
thanks to Sheila Kingswood
for the walk.
