Time taken: 6 hours

Distance: 20.5km

A fine crisp Autumn day to do this circuit - starting from the Old Military Road walking up Glen More- lots of sheep - up to Mona Gowan. There I met a group of Fireman out on a practise session driving their vehicle on these Estate tracks. Then a long walk across the slopes - no path as such - down & up the Slacks of Glencarvie and then a gradual pull-up to Morven. Notice a lot of low growing juniper plants and the lovely sounds of flying geese & ravens.
Then a long trek back to the car, past Morven lodge & along Glen Fenzie.
A really fine circuit.
