One of the best places to go walking
and see otters is the Arisaig coast road, it has been stated.
In an emailed newsletter to subscribers, Car Free Walks blogged about the route, which is close to Mallaig, a destination reached by a scenic rail route from Fort William.
The blogger noted that as well as the aquatic mammals being visible, those donning their hiking boots can enjoy a quick climb of the Arisaig Peninsula's highest point, Cruach Doire an Dobhrain, which is just 103 metres (338 ft) high.
As well as the rugged and remote coastal scenery, the author of the piece noted that people bringing tents
can also enjoy camping in the vicinity, with a number of sites near Keppoch.
Walkers taking a train from Fort William towards Mallaig can also stop at Glenfinnan and do the horseshoe of that name, the site notes.
A full day's walk, it includes two Munros, Sgurr Thuilm and Sgurr nan Coireachain.
