Route Description

This route is part of the 'Harris Walkway', signposted at both ends, with information boards.
A broad landrover track up Loch Laxadale, gradually becoming more green and overgrown towards the head of the loch, then climbing to the summit at NB 184 043, thereafter descending to cross the Maruig river by a good bridge to meet the public road. Somewhat wet after the summit on the north side, especially after rain, but generally a good route. Maximum height is 140m at NB 184 043.

OS Landranger 14 (Tarbert & Loch Seaforth)
