30th May 2003 & 4th June 2008

Route: 25 miles (of which 7.6 bikeable), 5150' ascent, 9–10 hrs.

Evaluation: 3*-4* walk, depending on conditions.
Route: Track can be biked easily from A86 to Lubvan (ruin). The details below give walking (30/5/03) and cycling (4/6/08) times. No stepping stones over Allt Cam at NN444765, so avoid river in spate. Reasonable deer paths for return along Dubh Lochan valley.
Weather (4/6/08): Warm, dry, scattered high clouds, breeze.
