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.

Difficulty

Severe

Hiking challenging trails where simple scrambling, with the occasional use of the hands, is a distinct possibility. The trails are often filled with all manner of obstacles both small and large, and the hills are very steep. Obstacles and challenges are often unexpected and can be unpredictable.
