A gentle guided walk in Assynt

Discover Assynt through the eyes of a local with Guided Story Walks, led by award winning storyteller, folklorist and poet, Griogair MacAllein. Journey through the surrounding area and discover hidden gems that Griogair feels have been overlooked by other North Coast 500 tourists. Visit undiscovered peat roads, old crofting settlements, rivers, woods and more.

  • Available all year round
  • Suitable for all levels and abilities
  • Delicious picnic or packed lunch provided by our kitchen team

An engaging tour packed full of enchanting stories, majestic views, ancient folklore and tales of olden communities. Embrace the journey with Griogair and discover real history lying beneath the stones, hiding in the bracken, floating along the riverbanks and underneath the dark lochans.

Learn about how the Highland environment shaped previous beliefs and legends and get the chance to build your own shelter or art using bushcraft. Finally, if you’re lucky, Griogair will even teach you how to understand the ‘Traveler’s signs of the ‘old ways.’’
