News and Information Updates on the Affric Kintail Way


The Snowman Rally takes place again on Saturday 4th March 2023. The rally course includes the forestry roads between Drumnadrochit and Corrimony that are part of the AKW. This part of the AKW will be closed all day on the above date with warning signs in place.

It is also anticipated that the A831 between Drumnadrochit and Cannich will be much busier than usual given the interest in the event and the large number of spectators expected.

We therefore suggest that the entire section between Drumnadrochit and Cannich should be avoided on the day of the rally.

The rally organisers will be setting up the previous weekend but these activities will not affect safe access to the AKW and the route will be fully open.

In the interests of safety for all concerned please heed the above information and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
