Initial gradual ascent to Loch cruite skirting its western side along a rough and narrow sheep track to the base of the waterfall flowing from Loch na lice (1.5hrs approx.). From here it is undulating steep climbing all the way up by the ribbon like string of lakes until we meet the “tourist” track from Faha (2 hrs+). Here we loop around and follow this track for approx. 20 mins before heading South East towards Loch Cruites eastern shores and back to our start point.
