Despite there being multiple single day routes that give access to the Munros north of Glen Kinglass, it is arguably more adventurous to combine them into a single outing over several days, allowing some more remote terrain to be travelled. The route can be nicely split over two or more days with a multitude of wild camping sites available. A clear highlight of the route is the camp beside Loch Dochard. Alternative start and end points could be used but the route described here aims to maximise the variety.

Paths exist for some sections but parts of the route are over pathless ground.
In winter the route finding may be significantly more challenging, and there's some steep ground requiring care - on Stob coir an Albannaich for instance. The east ridge of Ben Starav and the Aonach Eagach ridge of Stob Ghabhar both take on a mountaineering feel in winter conditions.
