Torvean is a glacial moraine and used to be quarried for its sand and gravel, so it now resembles the crater of a volcano and the walk goes round the 'rim of the crater'. It is well-vegetated now and the broom and whins give it a yellow carpet. There is a short, steep climb through deciduous woods between Waymarks 02 and 03, but the rest of the walking is easy. No special footwear is needed except in bad weather. From the top, there are lovely views of the River Ness and the Caledonian Canal in the Great Glen and of Craig Dunain (Walk 2793).
