Challenging hike, starts and ends with fairly long, very steep stretches. Also some long stretches of bog which are hard-going and a bit dreary as they have you looking at your feet a lot (and I still managed to sink in knee deep). That said, walking along the ridges there are stunning views to either side, there is plenty of wildlife around and I encountered only very few people, so I might very well do this one again.
