The finest walk on the Morvern peninsula, this classic horseshoe follows the ridges enclosing Glen Galmadale, including the two Corbetts, Fuar Bheinn and Creach Bheinn and the Fiona Beinn na Cille. A good deal of ascent and descent it involved, making this a more strenuous outing than might be imagined.


Rough ridgewalking on mostly grassy ridges. The route is pathless and the initial climb is steep and often impeded by vegetation.
