Craig Diabaig Reviews
Walk - Lower Diabaig to Craig and Red Point Jul 06, 2010
At the very end of the road through Torridon (right turning at Lower Diabaig) you will reach the old post office.
Follow the well marked footpath along the coast from here. At times the sea will be hidden but you will get many glances and you will cross some small streams with a few trees.
After a time you will come to what is possibly the UK's most remote Youth Hostel. There are only three ways there.
1. The walk you have taken.
2. The walk from the other direction, which will take you to Red Point on a road from Gairloch through Badachro if you wish to continue.
3. Use a boat.
You will hardly be surprised that heavy items for the Youth Hostel are delivered by boat and sacks of fuel can sometimes be seen on the beach awaiting arrival.
Red Point has a large beach and the walk there and back from Diabaig is quite feasible in a day.
