The rail line Inverness-Kyle of Lochalsh offers a very scenic day out. There's not a lot to do in Kyle between the first train in and last out, but 5 hours or so is just right to walk to Balmacara and back. Follow a path over NTS land through native woods and moorland, with great coast and mountain views over Skye and inland, and a handy cafe at Balmacara Square! Or alight at Plockton for a linear walk, via quiet back roads to Balmacara; allow two hours for the last 3 miles to the Kyle train!
