    Expect lonely lochs nestled in wild scenery and pleasant walking through empty moorland on this stage.With 12.7 miles (20.4 km) of distance, 925 feet (282 m) of uphill and 850 feet (259 m) of downhill, this is another moderately-challenging hike.The stage begins with 3.5 miles (5.6 km) of walking along country lanes. Fortunately, the lanes are not busy and afford lovely views over Kilbrannan Sound to the mountains of Arran.You then take a footpath to the right and rise through a landscape of tussock grass and small woodlands. As you climb, be sure to keep glancing over your shoulder for superb views. As the trail reaches a high point, you wind around the southern edge of Lochan Fraoich and the northern tip of Lochan a' Chreimh, two pretty stretches of water surrounded by pines and moor.
    You join forestry tracks for the next 1.5 miles (2.4 km) and soon stumble upon Loch Ciaran, another striking freshwater lake.
    The trail descends along a small glen beside the Allt Mor burn into greener pastures to finish in the village of Clachan, where you find a couple of places to stay and a small petrol station shop.
