Trail Description:

This is ride 2 on the map.

From Drimnin pier, follow the right fork in the estate track that leads uphill through the oakwood.  The track levels out and you come to a gate on your right with a stile, leading to a rougherfarm track.  The rough section is short lived and you are soon back onto a good track.  From here you start to climb gradually and the ring of Ardnamurchan and Ben Hiant come into view.  Passing the cleared townships of Auliston and Portnabhata, the track then drops down to the birchwoods of Loch na Droma Buidhe (Loch of the yellow ridge): take care on the rutted section of the descent.  The track ends at Dorlinn, where there was once a whisky still and a ferry crossing to Ardnamurchan

Thanks to Jake Willis of the Sunart Oakwoods Inititative for this ride.
