West Affric is situated on the eastern border of two other estates - Kintail and Glomach. It includes part of the old Skye to Dingwall carriageway, which is now a popular long-distance walk in the Highlands. This route is filled with secluded paths, which provide access across the glen and into the mountains. The National Trust for Scotland runs its maintenance.
West Affric is located at the western end of the Glen Affric National Scenic Area, a vast area of beautiful wilderness that has much to offer visitors, with its native forests, stunning lochs and rugged moors. Bare mountain rocks stand out with striking clarity, while the spongy moorland below provides perfect hiking terrain.
