Billed as Britains only waymarked mountain walk, this superlative walk is one of a kind. The spectacular path climbs very steeply through a wide range of habitats from magnificent ancient pinewoods up onto a bare, ice-scraped plateau of quartzite rocks. The views are fantastic.
Although the route is waymarked with special cairns, it is very steep and rocky, and exposed to the elements in its upper sections. Hillwalking boots, wind- and waterproof clothing are essential.
Bus from Inverness/Kinlochewe and Gairloch.
Coille na Glas Letire Trails car park, off the A832.
