Other routes and challenges

The first part of the route described above can be used for a short out-and-back route, but the full ridgewalk given above is one of the finest in the southern Highlands and it would be a real shame to miss it.

One possible but little done alternative would be a horseshoe of ridges around Coire Riadhailt and Coire Glas from the north.
