This fine circuit visits the edge of the Fisherfield Forest, an area known to keen hillwalkers as the 'Great Wilderness'. It passes through scenery including attractive woodland, a fine river and bleak, boggy moorland, has fine views of the surrounding mountains and visits a well-known bothy.


The path leading to Shenavall is badly eroded and very boggy but there are better tracks or paths for most of the rest of the route.
