Walk beside the Beauly River

By Julian Paren

The river defences of the River Beauly provide an elevated yet narrow walk along the side of the river. Best done in the winter when vegetation is low - in summer there will be a few inconveniences from lush growth. It is also wise to consult tide tables as the firth is tidal in this stretch of the river, and the higher the water level the less debris - natural and man-made is seen at the water's edge - and the more exciting the prospect is where water floods the saltmarsh. Good after rain.

This is a short walk to a corner of the firth - perhaps what may be thought as the junction of the River Beauly with the Beauly Firth, but in reality one just merges into the other.

This out and back walk is 3.3 miles long and with having to watch your step can take between 1.5 and 2 hours. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page Link .
