A short circular hillwalk into an area of small rocky hills with many small lochs, collectively known as the Fairy Lochs locally as they lie below Sithean Mor (the fairy hill). Excellent views to both the coastline and mountains, the route visits a memorial marking the site of a fatal air-crash from World War 2.


First part after leaving track is very boggy though there is a rough path over exposed moorland (water/windproofs essential). Hard surface hydro track for return.
