Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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.
