Bog on top: mud in the valleys and one exciting stream crossing so you'll need waterproof footwear and/or a change of socks.
This is a long and fairly strenuous walk with no bailouts, so please be sure you're capable of doing the whole route at a reasonable pace.
Bring sufficient food/water for the day. The walk is very exposed in places so you must have waterproofs and warm layers with you.
