Barrisdale Bay to Morvich
At 33km with significant ascent, this leg may be best split over two days, perhaps with a break at Kinloch Hourn. After travelling the rollercoaster coastal path from Barrisdale Bay the small seasonal tearoom will certainly be a welcome sight. After Kinloch Hourn the route leads over boggy trackless ground to cross the Forcan Ridge between a pair of tempting Munros before dropping to civilisation at Shiel Bridge.
Mainly rough, boggy footpaths and pathless terrain; short sections of surfaced road.
No road access to Barrisdale Bay. Shiel Bridge / Morvich are well served by Citylink buses between Glasgow, Fort William, Inverness and Skye.
Hillwalking in Winter

All route descriptions and difficulties given here are for summer conditions.
