This very long variant heads across the appropriately named 'Rough Bounds of Knoydart' to divert to Inverie. The first section to Sourlies involves rough and boggy going once beyond the forestry; the second half has a better path but climbs steeply to the Màm Meadail pass. If it is too much, consider spending a night at the idyllically-located Sourlies bothy or camping nearby.


Rough and boggy paths; better graded path on ascent to Màm Meadail

Public Transport

No road access.


Track above A' Chuil bothy. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
