A classic Knoydart walk, this is the biggest Munro on the peninsula and a fine day out. Start from Inverie, and follow landrover tracks and mountain ridges to complete this great Scottish walk. There are trains to Mallaig, where you get the ferry to Inverie.

Started from long beach campsite, distance was 26.5km, elevation more like 1400m with up and down on the ridge. There is no path from the path by the lake to the route. Recommend going on a clear day, and take the path to the north up and back.
