The hill with the longest name in Scotland makes for an enjoyable circuit with - as is usual in the far northwest - stunning summit views.


Grassy stalkers' track for initial ascent, then pathless ridges - heather at first, becoming rockier. Descent crosses peat bogs and includes burn crossing.

Public Transport
