Poolewe walk round Loch Kernsary

The Poolewe walk round Loch Kernsary is simple to follow and reasonably easy, a few short inclines and boggy in places. The route to follow to get the best views of Loch Kernsary and the Fisherfield mountains is via the footpath signposted to Loch Kernsary just outside of the village Poolewe. You can park in a lay-by on the opposite side of the road that is very close to the footpath.

Once you reach the other end of Loch Kernsary you need to walk through the farm to then follow a track back to Poolewe. I found this part of the walk fairly mundane, not really offering any decent views of Loch Maree, though the last stretch is reasonably pleasant where the path meets the River Ewe.

All of the following pictures are the views you get as you walk up to the farm.

Next I used both HDR and Topaz Clarity, but I cannot decide which of the 2 final effects I prefer and so posted both.
