This is part of an old drove road, used by long distance traffic and also serving the shielings whose many ruins are still to be seen in the glen. These shielings are beautifully written about in Kathleen Jamie's book Findings (2005). Although little used now, the drove road is said to be still a good route between Glen Lochay and Glen Lyon.
The old drove road can be traced onwards as far as Loch Rannoch by continuing north to Bridge of Balgie and thence north from Innerwick by the Lairig Ghallabhaich.
