An awesome day as you head cross-country past Loch Breaclaich into the hills above Loch Tay.

This is the most challenging section of the way in terms of ascent and route finding so in poor weather conditions you should be willing to follow the south Loch Tay road if unsure of your route finding ability. On a good day it provides the highlight of this fantastic journey. Once you have descended to Ardeonaig you follow a minor road along the shore of Loch Tay to Ardtalnaig.

So far my favourite day - lots of highland walking once you reach the top of the hill. Great views of Loche Tay at the end. FYI we had poor reception at the pickup point.
