Fantastic! Deserves five stars but the lack of trail markings knocks it down a smidge. A solid climb gets you started then a series of smaller ups and downs takes you across the circuit until the final descent. Could actually be described as a five-peak route. That first climb has a relatively well-defined trail, but leaving the peak is where it basically ends. On a day with good visibility this wasn’t at all a problem. But if there’s a heavy fog then be certain to carry your map and compass. I ran it in late June and there were many sheep and red deer along the way. Overall, a truly outstanding route.
