Maol-bhuidhe to Craig
This route gives tough going, starting from remote Maol-bhuidhe bothy. Bendronaig Bothy can be reached by a short detour before the route - rough and tough - climbs over the Bealach Bearnais. The descent is more straightforward, with a path and then a rough track down to Craig in Strath Carron.
Rough, boggy footpaths and pathless terrain; final track to Craig gives easier going.
No road access to start of stage; there is a rail station 4km from Craig at Achnashellach.
