Grade - hard

This Highland walk from Loch Eil ascends Monadh Beag and Meall a' Phubuill which lie to the north of Drumsallie on the A830 west of Fort William. The walk is strenuous, lacks paths in some sections, involves tricky river crossings with some very steep uphill work. Enough hours of daylight to complete the route and excellent map reading skills are required.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. Travel restrictions for exercise in Wales and Scotland will be lifted in early July.
