Glamaig and the northern Red Hills give a fine circuit with punishing scree but unparalleled views.
Very steep slopes of scree and stones have to be negotiated, particularly on Glamaig (which can be omitted). The lower ground is very boggy in places. There is a path for most of the route.
Buses from Portree, Broadford and Kyleakin - get off at Sligachan Hotel.
Please note that hillwalking in winter conditions - which is whenever there is snow lying - requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly, and to judge which routes are safe for the conditions and your party in winter. Please see our Winter Essentials for details.
