Quite a strenuous walk, climbing 350 metres, into rough country. In good weather it's easy; a map and compass would help in bad weather. The climb up to the top of the ridge is through forest on good tracks and there are clearings offering splendid views to the Great Glen.

A long section on open moorland follows, on muddy paths, leading down into Glen Moriston, again with beautiful views to the Affric and Cannich Hills and to the West Highlands. One burn, the Allt Phocaichain, could be impassable in wet weather, necessitating an about-turn... Boots are essential and bad weather clothing should be carried.
