A walk to see the Old Man of Stoer (not to be confused with the Old Man of Storr on Skye) is a 7.5km circular walk along the cliff tops at Stoer on the Assynt Peninsular.
The walk starts at Stoer lighthouse where there is a WC and possibly the most northerly bacon roll caravan in Scotland- not open on Saturdays- where you can buy freshly made breakfast rolls among other goodies, all home made or locally sourced.
From the lighthouse the path heads across the cliffs parallel with the coast until you see the Old Man. From there you can walk onto Stoer Point for views of the Sutherland coast and return via the elevated OS trig point and an abandoned WW2 radar station.
Walking boots are required as the land is boggy in places, but on a clear day the views out to sea are impressive.
