This short but rough walk has excellent views of the famous Parallel Roads which stand out as horizontal ridges on both sides of the Glen. There is not a path for the whole route so navigation skills are required.


Rough path with short steep section; then a pathless, often wet section over heather and finally stony track and minor road.
