The distance is about 10.2km or 6.4mls, with about 200m of ascent and likely time of 2-2.5 hours

After the walk we could visit the Heron Farm Shop & Kitchen for a refreshment before heading for home. It is about 10mins drive away on the Ardochrig Road.

If you would like to join the club on this outing, please let me know by Monday 26th February. Please also let me know what your travel plans are so that I can co-ordinate car sharing.
