Scottish National Trail: Kylestrome to Rhiconich

This segment crosses the proud summit of Ben Dreavie––notable less for its elevation (501m) and more for its relief of at least 150m on every side. It’s a long trek on barren and often boggy moorland over this summit, along the flanks of Ben Stack, then returning to sea level at A838, before another long slog on partially pathless moorland alongside remote lochs and crossing a wide river.
