Glamaig and the northern Red Hills give a fine horseshoe circuit with unparalleled views all around - but sections of punishing steep scree.
Very steep slopes of scree and stones have to be negotiated, particularly on Glamaig (which can be omitted). The lower ground is very boggy in places. There is a path for most of the route.
Buses from Portree, Broadford and Kyleakin - get off at Sligachan Hotel.
