The route covers 2 munros which lie between Loch Laggin and Loch Ericht, and between Ben Alder and Ardverkie munros which is a wild and remote area of the central Highlands indeed. It's a long demanding route with a long approach along the south of Loch Ossain you do however start at around the 400 metre mark.

On a clear day there is good views over to Ben Alder on the south east.
It should be possible to this route easily between the first and last trains from Corrour Station. If not there's Loch Ossain Hostel.
