Leisurely Walks
The steep pull up Ben Bhraggie (or Beinn a'Bhragaidh to give it its proper, Gaelic name) is well rewarded by excellent views over the coastline and inland hills - on a clear day both coasts of Scotland can be seen. The massive Sutherland monument, locally known as the 'The Mannie', marks the top from where this circuit takes a gentler route down on forest tracks initially. The circuit is then extended by returning down the dramatic Big Burn gorge.
