Full Description

Allt a’Ghrianain
The Allt a’Ghrianain is a tributary of the Allt a’Mhuillin which drains an extensive area of impoverished waste bog lands to the north of Milton. The Allt a’Ghrianain has a SE - NW flow and the surrounding area has evidence of peat workings.

1174 Track - NH 31186 57093 (S end) NH 31477 57904 (N end) but probably continues southward towards Milton and northwards towards Loch Luichart. It is marked on the 1st Edition OS map and may be an old drove route. The stretch recorded here is very evident on the ground as a worn track between 5 and 6m in width. <1>
