This walk has glorious views over contrasting glens and lochs. It can be started at Waymark 12 or 2 and with a second car this section can be driven, but don't omit the Carr Brae viewpoint. The walk is strenuous but not difficult for a fit hillwalker.

20th September 2018 - we followed the suggestion to leave one car at 12 and started the walk from 2. A strong westerly wind blew at our backs as we walked up from Bundalloch. The rain from previous days meant the River Glennan 'fords' were non-existent. A heron kept rising from the river ahead of us leading us on. I think we saw no more than 5 sheep at any stage. We found the path difficult to follow at times - particularly as we neared the source of the Glennan and again at Bealach A Ghleannain. The views down to Camus-luinie and Glen Elchaig were spectacular. A new deer fence is not shown on the Ordinance Survey Map but proved helpful as gates identified the path. The wind made the trek up and over Mam Coire Doimhneid challenging. The recent rain had turned all the paths here into streams. Hearts sank when the path appeared to go on up the side of Carn Bad A Chreamha but we were all pleased to see the water flow change from against to with us as we crested the pass. The section down Allt a Mhaim was a welcome change and led to views of spectacular waterfalls down Coire Dhuinnid - An Leth-Allt being in full flow. The definition 'strenous' was certainly correct. Shortening the 12 miles down to 7.5 miles still took 6 hours for our party including a fit 72 year old.
