Full Description

An old track runs SW-NE across the SE part of the survey area, from An Slochd to Allt Dubh Uisg, mostly within the forestry plantation. The SW element follows the route of an old track, marked on the OS 1st Ed. 6" map from Corrlarach in Cona Glen to the shore of Loch Eil at Duisky. A forest track follows the route between Allt Meall an Doire Shleaghaich and An Dubh Uisge but then crosses the latter whereas the original track continued on the NW side of the river. It is recommended that this path should be preserved as a feature in the landscape. <1>
