Anti-clockwise wouldn't be too bad, but I would have to agree with Alan and recommend the clockwise route to give you an easier start and a quick return to your car.

Keep your eyes peeled for the turning for the car park when driving up there too - easily missed!

Very satisfying this one when you finish. 4 bagged in one day has to be good! Had very bad weather, almost continuous drizzle. Climb to the top of the first was a nightmare, got soaked through. After that, with good weather it would be a lovely wander over the undulating tops. Only view I got was just like the photo in the report - looking back down Glen Lyon. Lost the path on the way down, but I'm not sure there was one to start with. At the bottom I had to hurdle several field fences and dodge the livestock to get onto the road. Prepared for a good distance walk along the road, I was delighted to find that the next corner produced the red post box!!

Would do this one again in better weather.
