Glen Feshie is a beautiful, wild glen, its upper reaches clothed with some magnificent Scots pinewoods. The route passes Ruigh Aiteachain, a fabulously situated bothy. The landslide at An Cagàin is the turning point described here, but you can choose to turn back earlier or go further up the glen for whatever distance best suits you.


Mostly good path but with two burn crossings which can be impassable in spate.

Public Transport

None to start.
