The Merrick via Loch Valley, from Glen Trool

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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.


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