For a long time, I had been aware of the reputation of Glen Affric as the most beautiful glen in Scotland. Autumn 2018 was the time when I did something about it. The decisive factor was to succumb to the necessity of hiring a car to make the visit possible – a bus will only get you as far as the village of Cannich, which is 17k from the furthest car-park in Glen Affric where the good stuff starts. Cannich is about 47k south-west of Inverness. The car enabled me also to visit two other glens in the vicinity, Glen Strathfarrar and Glen Cannich. The weather was the usual Highland cocktail of sun, showers, clouds and wind.
