Glenfinnan to A' Chuil

Now heading north from Glenfinnan into wild, rough terrain this short leg begins on easy estate tracks before offering a real introduction to the rough terrain that will be crossed over the next few days. The bothy at A'Chuil is a convenient halt for the night, but it is of course possible to push on further, perhaps as far as the bothy at Sourlies.


Surfaced road, good estate and forestry tracks and rough, rocky footpaths.

Public Transport
