Quiet roads from Oban to Taynuilt about 20 kms, then spectacular coastal and mountain up Glen Noe mainly along rough track climbing nearly 500 metres from sea level before descending to Dalmally with final approach along old military road. This route also avoids the busy A85.
WARNING. Deerstalking in Glen Noe. The deerstalking season starts on July 1st and continues to October 20th with serious culling of deer from about mid-August. This activity brings money and employment to remote rural areas and is an important part of land management. Deer are easily frightened by walkers. When planning your route and timetable you should check with Glen Noe Estate T: 01866 822212. There is no stalking on Sundays.
