If you are into geology then Knockan Crag is a great place to visit. There is a short walk (approximately 2km), with some steep inclines that takes you around the park and offers some great views across Assynt. When we visited the site today it was covered in snow so the geology wasn’t easy to see, but we did enjoy the wintry views.
