Great walk nice view up to Glen Dochart and back towards Balquhidder. This descriptions says there if coloured sign post. There wasn't any obvious coloured marker posts. You still can't really go off track basically staying straight and not taking any turns. The two obvious signs I passed were for Creag and Turic at the water station and Glen Dochart path at the top bend of the glen. My route went to the top bend and back down as I was running and burst by that point. As the description says it's a loop and can be done clockwise or anticlockwise. If going clockwise, as descried and the way I went, it is mainly uphill till the bend and as I turned back to run downhill I'm not sure on the top path.
The track is well kept also.
