High Point

This route is for big days, possibly split over 2 days. I have done it and it is a really tough day! It takes in a couple of Munros and you do get some great views. The lower loop has one point where it is easy to miss the turn, so recommend downloading the GPX file I have provided and use that.

Happy riding!
