Craig to Kinlochewe
The stage of the route uses the Coulin Pass - with relatively easy paths and some superb views. The downside is the final 2km along an overgrown path that sorely tests the patience, especially with a heavy pack.
Clear, firm footpaths and tracks. The final 'path' into Kinlochewe is a frustrating battle through the undergrowth that'll only please the member of your party that insisted on bringing that heavy machete, although there are plans to improve the path.
There is a rail station 4km from Craig at Achnashellach; Kinlochewe is served by buses from Inverness.
