Description [Suggest Changes]

This is where the Beinn Damh Circuit starts to get interesting. When you reach a small fishing hut about halfway down the length of the loch, the Loch Damh Farm Road transforms into this singletrack. If you didn't get the backcountry feel from the farm road, this will likely get you there.

This singletrack is generally flat as it follows the shore of the loch, but it's quite narrow in places (the brush may be overgrown, attacking you shins). There are a number of steep creeks that run off the side of the mountain to the east and consequently, the trail can be boggy in areas. There's a small beach at the southern end of the loch if you feel up for a swim.

This trail segment ends near a rare outcropping of trees near a small house (Kinloch Damph) and before you cross the (Abhainn Dearg) which is a wide-ish river. If you're following the Beinn Damh Circuit, turn left onto the challenging Drochaid Coire Roill which will definitely give you that backcountry feel. If you're not feeling backcountry, turn right to cross a small bridge over the Abhainn Dearg and follow the gravel road out to the A896 to make a circuit back to the north end of Loch Damh.
