This alternative approach to the Merrick has the advantage of enabling a circular route. However the route up Loch Valley - though attractive - is very boggy.

Terrain

Exceptionally boggy path leading up Loch Valley. Final ascent up from Loch Enoch is pathless, open slope.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Car park near Bruce's Stone. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
