A fabulous mountain ridgewalk taking in two Munros with stunning views; the route is marred however by the ascent and descent from the ridge on pathless heather and eroded paths. NOTE: April 2017 tree felling operation may involve a diversion to this route, please follow any signs.


Excellent walking on narrow grassy and rocky ridges higher up, but the ascent is up pathless, steep heather and the descent is on a poor, eroded and muddy path.
