| Walk description
Starting at the mouth of Glen Sannox, a gentle climb to the foot of Cioch na h-Oighe over footpath and moor provides a good warm-up for the day. It soon gets serious: From there, the clamber to the top is very steep and relentless. 200 meters are ascended in little over half a kilometre with some exposed scrambling on the way. The ridge that follows is narrow and has near vertical drops down to the evocatively named Devil’s Punchbowl corrie.
The route then climbs to the next peak of Mullach Buidhe and past North Goatfell with a good path over high ground to Stacach ridge and the summit of Goatfell. Great views into Glen Sannox and across the Firth of Clyde can be enjoyed along the way. From Goatfell the route follows the main path down to the finish at Cladach.
