Route Description

From the wicket gate and signpost at NN 095603 the footpath goes through the trees near the edge of the wood and crosses the line of an old wall at NN 097607 (height 61m). From there it continues straight up the grassy hillside in a northerly direction towards the skyline and close to the corner of a conifer plantation. There is no definite path and, although previously waymarked, only one of the Scotways' marker posts remains. From the top of the bealach the route turns north east and descends steadily across the hillside on a more definite path to Lairigmor.

OS Landranger 41 (Ben Nevis, Fort William and surrounding area)

Heritage Information

General Roy's map of 1755 shows clearly two ferries across Loch Leven, one between North and South Ballachuilish, and one across to Callert, from which a 'road' is marked going up towards Larigmor. The first edition of the OS 6" map (1873) which was surveyed in 1870 shows a ferry at Callert, but by the second edition (1903, surveyed 1899) the ferry is omitted.
