Part of a blue trail - very beautiful path with a wonderful view of the Highlands, as well as a nice lake at the apex of the path. The ascent along the mountain is steep and rocky but well run.

Pretty easy for a 2-hour day hike. The north side of the loop is much more interesting than the south side - views of the Cairngorms to the south were a nice backdrop as we were walking along the mostly gravel trail. Only one section offered anything in the way of difficulty, and if you’re doing the loop clockwise, this difficult section is almost exclusively downhill as you approach An Lochan Uaine. The water at An Lochan Uaine is very clear and appears green, and the views from the loch of the surrounding hills and cliffs are worth the relatively low amount of effort required to get there. Overall, if you’re looking for a half-day hike of moderate to strenuous difficulty, this ain’t it. However, if you’re looking for a nice and easy, relatively accessible loop that gives you a little taste of the Cairngorms in under 2 hours, you could absolutely do worse.
