A great walk to get you into the Cuillin scenery without the need for any scrambling or other difficulties. The first section follows a beautiful crystal clear stream full of lovely pools and waterfalls - well worth a shorter walk in itself. Clear undulating path with no difficulties and only short boggy sections. Ignore an early fork to the left and follow the path as it runs next to the stream. On a hot day, enjoy swimming in the beautiful fairy pools.
