The Full Morven course (8km, 640m climb) takes a direct route up Morven above the ruined cottage of Balhennie, starting on the walker’s access path by the roadside. It follows good tracks all the way and will be marked. The initial steep section above Balhennie is avoided on the descent by the gentler landrover track which descends diagonally NE to Balhennie from the coll below Roar Hill (ref 395033).

Safety – Minimum kit recommendations:- Full body cover to be carried. Map, compass & whistle depending on conditions on the day.

As per the "Safety" tab on the SHR website
