Four days three night walk with packs transported by boat. First multi day walk, challenging in sections but generally beautiful particularly the beech forests near the end.

Did sections of it on day walks. Well maintained track, challenging enough. Stunning scenery of the sounds, coves. You can combine with sea kayaking, mountain biking, drop off/pick up by water taxi. Just adventure heaven. Be prepared for all weather.

Loved this walk especially the places we stayed along the way. Only carried day packs, luggage was transported along the way.
