A beautiful and interesting walk, was lucky I took my hiking poles as a bit of a scramble in places but lots of fun! Watch the video of me walking this trail and camping on the west highland way on my YouTube channel - Drunk On Wanderlust

Ran this as part of a bigger WHW trip. Undulating so tough to get a rhythm, but otherwise pretty straightforward and scenic. Pub at the end was grand.

Tough hike as it's around the loch and is a lot of rock and tree roots to scramble around. Didn't get to take in the views because needed to watch the footing for every step. Rowardennan Inn's outdoor patio for drinks and sunset were well worth it in the end.
