For the most part the route is low-level and mainly follows canal towpaths, forest tracks and roads. There are some challenging sections though, and the more experienced walker may wish to tackle the Munros or Corbetts which lie within easy reach of the route. Keep an eye out for osprey, golden eagles, red kite and deer while enjoying the views available from this low-level yet challenging long distance route.
