Description

Kenneth McLennan of Blairbuie normally walked this route twice a week with the mail. The postal service got established in the 1860s and called a’Gabhail na Creige – taking the rock.

This was the sole route to travel on land from Achilitibuie to Ullapool until the circular road around the north was built. At the meeting stone above Achilitibuie churchgoers and cattle drovers would meet.

Once ready they would ‘take the rock’ to head south towards Clachan Church at the edge of Loch Broom or the markets further south.

The ‘Postie`s Path’ is not for the fainthearted but has been slowly restored to make the walk easier to navigate with some stone markers to show the way.

Walk details: 6.2 miles, 10 km – Ascent 270 m, Descent 380 m – Walking time 3 – 4 h
