Chapter 1

Day4, pp24: the wood and windmill referred to to locate the right turn at grid reference ND 109 230 no longer exist. The wood  has either been harvested or suffered severe wind damage. A better description would now read ". . . with Langwell house before you turn R 200 m after passing under the power lines and follow a track  along a wall beside the remains of woodland."

Day2, pp24: the 4 km of path from the footbridge at Craig to the "Fishing Station" can be challenging when very wet, being both rocky and boggy.

Day 2 pp55: the bus stop no longer exists. The track goes off by a small gravelly layby with a B&B sign. The Track off the A832 has become very overgrown towards the Slatterdale track. Just persist!

Day 2 pp55: at Grid Ref NG 884 737 a new, much better path heads WNW beside the Allt na Doire (presumably towards Loch Doire na h-Airighen, no doubt a pretty diversion.)Don't take it! the route goes NNW through the gate in the forest fence.

Day 3, pp 133: several people have reported that the higher path at around grid reference NN 862 901 is now very eroded. Special thanks to Simon Blakey for his images of the SRWAS warning notice and the crux issue with the path(see his fb posting on @MountainBikingAdventures with many more pics)

The alternative is to ford  the River Feshie twice. Pictures on p133 and p143 show  these crossings on a day with very low water levels. It's unlikely that you will cross with dry feet on the best of occasions and very likely that you may choose to cut back up to the high path if the river is full.

Day 1, pp 143: the route through Glenfeshie is exactly the same as day three of Route 10. See comments above.

Day 4, pp184: the waymarked Cataran trail can be picked up at Enochdhu and followed to the turnoff at grid reference NO 083 574 saving about 3 km of tarmac on the "main" road.
