The Fisherfield Forest - also known as the Great Wilderness - contains the remotest Munros in all Scotland. The effort required is fully repaid, however, as this is a spectacular region of dramatic peaks and ridges - the views from the summits are often claimed to be the finest in Scotland. The route is an epic round of all five Munros and one Corbett, starting and finishing at Shenavall bothy or a nearby wild camp.


Steep heathery hillsides, scree, boulderfields, narrow ridges, broad grass slopes, some easy scrambling, serious river-crossings. And one of the worst sections of bog you can imagine!
