Ascent
 

Starting at Stinchar Bridge with an altitude of almost 400 metres makes the route slightly less arduous.

Cornish Hill is the first top, revealing hidden lochs and a steady climb over tussocks and damp ground leading to the day's high point at Shalloch on Minnoch (768 metres). It is always worth stopping here to appreciate the view of the Clyde Estuary and beyond.

The mid-section of the route goes southerly for 4 kilometres maintaining an altitude of 600 metres providing a never ending variety of views.

The Donalds of Tarfessock and Kirriereoch are captured en route and the final leg turns westerly with one of the best descents along the ridge for almost 4 kilometres before entering the forest and a track leading to the finish at Kirriereoch.
