Parking at the A 832 at Dundonnell. At the creek, go up to a saddle at 380 meters, then take a path to the right. At a height to cairns at the foot of the Sail Liath. Simply high, getting stony, orientation to cairns. Above is a path more and more recognizable and it goes to the first summit of the Sail Liath 954m.

Great burr path to Sgurr Fiona 1060 Hm, there repeatedly exposed sites. Climbing according to your mood. It can be taken a well-guided path or the individual tips of the Sgurr Fiona be climbed on great grippy sandstone. Continue to Bideinn a Ghlas Thuill 1062 Hm on "up and down". From there into a mountain valley and right steep into a basin. You can usually see a small path well. Down to just before the road a rhododendron forest comes, nice but annoying requests until you come to the road.

Then 600m along the road back to the starting point. Hammer Tour 1500 m, 18 km. Waterfalls, secluded pristine mountain scenery, lochs, incredible views, great trails, beautiful watercourses and climbs if you want, with optional path bypasses. Everything your heart desires. Vertigo would not be bad.
