This walk makes a complete circuit around the base of Beinn Fhada, crossing both the Allt Ghrunnda and the Bealach na Sgairne passes. It makes a very long days circuit. Walkers who are less fit can break this into a two day hike by staying overnight at Alltbeithe youth hostel.


A very long walk though wild, remote countryside, far from help. There are paths for almost the whole route; mostly excellent but boggy and indistinct in one or two places.

Public Transport

None to start. Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness stop at Allt a'chruinn, 2km from Morvich.


Morvich. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
