Upper Strathcarron / Glen Alladale, Sutherland

The upper reaches of Strathcarron is a beautiful area with fine waterfalls and a lovely river lined with Scots Pine and other native tree species. It is entered from the main track at the car park near Glencalvie Lodge in the Amat Forest area. The beautiful Eas Charron Falls are a short detour from the main track.

Just before Alladale Lodge, the rivers Alladale and Abhainn Ghlinne Mhoir meet and form the beginning of the River Carron. The tracks diverge, one track going left into the magnificent Gleann Mor and the main track continuing into Glen Alladale past Alladale Lodge. The track climbs above the Alladale River and there are fine views into the glen and back towards Carn Salachaidh. It is a fine and easy walk.
