Glen Rosa (exact location will be confirmed upon booking)

| Walk description
The walk starts gently with a height gain of 150m over 5km up Glen Rosa, possibly imbuing a false sense of security in respect of the next couple of kilometres climbing 630m! Heading up to The Saddle at the head of the glen there is often a chance of spotting mountain wildlife such as red deer.
From The Saddle a much sterner climb gains the top of Cir Mhor and fabulous views down both Glens Rosa & Sannox. From the summit, the route descends and skirts round the back of the (in)famous A’Chir ridge to reach the Bowman’s Pass – Bealach an Fhir-bhogha. Next on the menu are the delightful slabs of the ridge of Beinn a’ Chliabhain from where most of the route so far can be surveyed. It is all downhill from here, across a bit of moorland and down the Garbh Allt burn back to Glen Rosa.
