Mandally to Poulary
This stage of the Scottish National Trail follows tracks through forests and regenerating pinewoods to the south of Loch Garry. At Garrygualach the tracks end, and from here to near Poulary the route follows the line of an old path - clear in some places, a quagmire in others. There is no longer a bridge over the Allt Choire a' Bhealachain necessitating a burn crossing.
Easy walking as far as Garrygualach; next section becomes much rougher on sometimes faint, very boggy path; potentially serious burn crossing over Allt Choire a' Bhalachain.
Buses serve Invergarry; there is no public transport to Poulary.
