Superb route in superb weather. 1600m of ascent and 16 miles if you go down all the way to the road at the bottom instead of taking the high path ....... A bit of tricky down climbing on An Stuc, but done in dry weather it poses not too many difficulties unless you hate exposure and some delicate footwork! I saw only 4 people in the whole day, and 2 were going to turn back before decsending An Stuc, but I managed to persuade them to carry on and do the whole route, so I ended up having some company for the rest of the route. Highly recommend this lovely traverse of all 5 munros; its highland walking at its absolute bestest!!
