Evan's Walk

Evan's Walk is a path and popular walking route on the island Jura (Argyll and Bute). It leaves the A846 road a mile (1.5 km) north northwest of Knockrome and proceeds northwest for 5 miles (8.2 km) to Loch Tarbert on the remote west coast of the island. It climbs to a height of 260m (850 feet) and then contours around Corra Bheinn, passing along the southwestern shore of Loch na Fudarlaich, before descending past the waterfalls on the Abhainn Loch na Fudarlaich and through Glen Batrick.

It is named after Henry Evans who leased an estate in this part of the island in 1888. The track was constructed so that Evans, his family and friends could reach Glenbatrick. He had only one leg, so travelled on horseback. Evans was deeply interested in deer management and published the Red Deer of Jura in 1890.
