Went that way with Alan Sloman in 2006. The line of the path then was just about discernable, being marked here and there with bits of yellow tape tied to twigs (probably long gone now).
No real other evidence on the ground and it was a bit of a struggle - boggy and tussocky with the odd fallen tree to clamber through. It was do-able (in thast we did it) but a time consuming and unrewarding experience.
It doesn't seem to have improved, judging by this Geograph picture from 2009.
No doubt a more recent pilgrim will be along with some up to date info.
Sadly we may never see the Balmacaan's or indeed the Monadhliath that way again.
On a plus not..Or Phil's belly.
2011 and the path from your GR out into open country was virtually impassable, OK it was impassable in that we couldn't get through without major surgery, either to forest or ourselves. Detoured around the path to the south of Carn na Creige but that disappears fairly shortly after where you would have re-entered the woods. Ended up just getting out of the trees and heading where at least you could see where you were going. If you're heading towards Bendronaig Lodge you may be interested in a superb camp site just to the NW of Loch Fuar where waterfall is shown on map. In a steep sided depression below the waterfall there's a lovely grassy patch, plenty of room for 4 tents or more - probably best not considered if it's wet and the burn is high. I'd include a photograph if only I knew how!
Thanks looks like we go the long way
Bit late now, but I was there in 2009 and posted this also on Geograph here. I did manage to get through but it was extremely difficult. What made you ask about this particular piece of track marked on the map?
