Kintail NSA, Visitor & Tourism Guide



In north west Scotland. The A87 cuts through this National Scenic Area to and from the Isle of Skye. Shares boundaries with Glen Affric National Scenic Area to the east and Knoydart National Scenic Area to the south. Includes Glen Shiel, site of a battle between Jacobite forces and the British government.

From the National Trust for Scotland website: ‘Kintail is a wild landscape with exceptional mountain scenery, which includes the magnificent ridge of the Five Sisters. It consists of montane habitats and species that are typical of the area as well as a coastal fringe where there is considerable evidence of a settled landscape, reflecting people’s use of the area over more than five millennia.’
