This superb walk follows paths across the flanks of the hill overlooking Strathpeffer before climbing up to the ridge to visit the site of a vitrified fort with wonderful views. It then continues along the ridge to a minor summit before a final, rougher descent.


Mostly easy to follow paths, slightly muddy in places. The descent from Cnoc Mòr is rougher and very steep and but this can be avoided if desired.
