Horrible path

Route: Beinn Bhuidhe, via Glen Fyne

Munros: Beinn Bhuidhe

Date walked: 09/09/2020

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 21.5km

Ascent: 950m

We went up the suggested route, biking up to the gate and then up by the west of the burn and back on the east of the burn.
We had generally poor weather (which may have biased my feelings!) and it was wet. The path is very bouldery and the stones are very slippy when wet, so it was all a bit of a struggle. It may be OK in dry conditions but at the time I felt we would be better off not even being on the path. The "bad step" was clearly treacherous and we went round it. I would be inclined to suggest that you go up and down on the east bank of the burn. There is a path developing, but it's not difficult navigation to get up (a compass bearing for the first kilometre and another for the second km would pretty much do it). Start just on the near side of the sheep fanks; there is a gate-sized space in the dyke with some old fencing wire across it, nip over that and head up. There are gates and stiles for all the fences, so use those and don't wreck the fences!
Take bikes if you can.
