Geo-Trips :: Circular walk around Loch Lundie

Black Isle

A walk from Pitlundie, Sun, 2 Apr 2017 by Julian Paren

Loch Lundie is the largest sheet of water on the Black Isle. It lies beside the fields located below the beautifully sited house of Pitlundie and is sheltered to the west by a ridge that contains a vitrified fort. The other side of the lake contains fine specimen Scots Pine on a further ridge that provides views over the Moray Firth. The views over the Black Isle are extensive and even extend down to Glen Affric to the south with a range of Highland mountains blocking the western horizon. The circular walk is 2.8 miles in length, and with numerous stops for photography and examining the ecology of the region could take two hours.
