Park at the Arivegaig road end at NM 649676 on OS Explorer
This is a long walk which many people cover without looking
around too much, but there is a lot to see.
The track is easy to follow since it is regularly used by
cars. You are passing round the west side of Kentra Bay and
anyone with binoculars will see a few waders along the shore
line. Note the power line on the right, this runs to (or from)
a small hydro-electric generator at Gorten, just off the track.
Beyond the power station the track crosses the burn over a
new bridge, you can see the remains of an earlier bridge and
the ford which preceeded both of them.
A little further on you pass Gorteneorn where there is a house
built from the same plans as Salen Hotel. On the beach are
piles of rocks which were ballast from boats collecting birch
wood to take south for making cotton reels. After the deer
stile, the road passes through a conifer plantation with several
large nests of wood ants on the right side. At the top of
the hill is a clearing which was once the site of a school.
The Singing Sands are down a well-used branch of the track
on the right side. They don't really sing, it's more like
a squeaking caused by friction among the rounded wind-blown
sand grains, but only when the sand is very dry.
