Dog Falls and Viewpoint 306 metres.

A short drive onto the other side of the glen, is Dog Falls. There is also a good viewpoint that overlooks Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin, Loch Affric and an array of Munro's.
The car park at Plodda was free whereas Dog falls had a £2 charge. Reasonable considering there are conveniences.
A wide logging or estate track crosses the river and is well marked as well as numerous new information boards. We are really into tourist territory now.

 Viewpoint 306 metres. Lunch stop.



 River Affric
The falls themselves are somewhat disappointing but the walk around the estate is worth doing. The viewpoint at 306 metres is worth doing, and a great place to have lunch, however the estate need to manage the trees as they are restricting the actual view up the glen. It is only around 5km, but again it can be extended if you wish.
Not shown on the OS map 1:25,000 is the path that runs parallel to the road on the north side of the glen. This keeps pedestrians off the single track road. 

The Affric/kintail way crosses here also.
