Kinlochewe to Shenavall

This classic stage crosses the Great Wilderness - as the Letterewe and Fisherfield forests are known. There are good paths and tracks apart from a rough, pathless section across classic high level Torridon mountain terrain from Loch Fada to Loch an Nid. It's possible to cut the stage short by skipping the final approach to Shenevall, but the bothy is large and well-appointed with excellent views in good weather.


One section of pathless, very rough terrain; the rest of the route has decent paths and tracks.
