If you want to really feel that sense of isolation, and to explore some rarely fished lochans, head in on the Clahtoll peat track at NC044270 for a good two and a half miles. Where the track peters out carry on heading east to find Loch an Aon Aite among a myriad of smaller lochans.
This is a full day out and depending how long you have, there are at least 20 lochans around and to the east of Aon Aite to explore. Don't spend too long at any one, but there are rumoured to be some very good fish about.
