The Acheninver Path has been used by walkers to access the youth hostel for at least the last 100 years. It links to a network of local paths forming a circular route that includes the core path between Achduart and Culnacraig and onwards from Culnacraig round Ben More Coigach to Strath Cannaird. To the north the path links to a rough track which runs up to the Achlochan Peninsula.

The current path to the coast at Acheninver is uneven, eroded and waterlogged in places. The connecting coastal route to the Broch at Achlochan lacks clear way-markers and easy access. As a result, walkers in the area are more likely to contribute to erosion, trample habitats and disturb wildlife and livestock. The project will seek to respect the original path construction and feel, whilst adding drainage features to improve water management across the path thereby reducing surface run off and further erosion.
