Scottish National Trail: Morvich to Maol-bhuidhe

The walk begins on the well-traveled path to Falls of Glomach, but descending past the falls requires steep scrambling through the gorge. Easier walking follows, on a primitive road through an inhabited glen, then a rugged footpath leads over another pass and down to the remote Maol-bhuidhe bothy.
