Abhainn Rath at Creaguaineach Lodge


Abhainn Rath at Creaguaineach Lodge.

The Abhainn Rath from the bridge at Creaguaineach Lodge before it flows into Loch Treig. The river can rise at frightening speed, hence the bridge has been built well clear of the water. The stepping stones at Staoinaig Bothy are tricky at the best of times, but when the water is over the stones it's a very dangerous situation!
