Kintail & Morvich
Kintail is a wild landscape with exceptional mountain scenery, which includes the magnificent ridge of the Five Sisters. It consists of montane habitats and species that are typical of the area as well as a coastal fringe where there is considerable evidence of a settled landscape, reflecting peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s use of the area over more than five millennia.

A designated National Scenic Area indicates that the landscape is of national significance
The south side of Beinn Fhada is nationally significant as a Geological Conservation Review site because of the massive rock slips formed during the last ice age
The Kintail Ranger Service offers a number of outdoor activities, some of which are run out of our own Outdoor Centre. These include sea kayaking taster days, beginner and intermediate sea kayaking courses, low-level guided walks, and high-level guided walks to the Falls of Glomach and across the famous ridge of the Five Sisters of Kintail.
Kintail has six Munros (mountains over 914m) and three of these are on the famous Five Sisters ridge which forms the south side of Gleann Lichd
The battle site of Glen Shiel is the only battle site in Scotland with upstanding remains of constructions associated with static positions prepared in advance of fighting on the day, as a result they are a scheduled ancient monument
Kintail and the surrounding properties of West Affric and the Falls of Glomach provide walkers with a true wilderness experience, enabling the more adventurous walker to explore dramatic mountain landscapes well away from human influences.
