Wonderful views for this day out, part of the awesome weather we had late August & early September 2021. We started early for us about 8.30 am, which was just as well as the path up Glen Nevis was closed for repairs. We asked a guy in carpark what was going on & he said he had been up the Glen the previous day & said it was easy to get through, but men weren't working. Then a van drew up with workmen in so we legged it up the Glen to get ahead of them. It was safe to get by and we were soon up by the Steall Falls which were impressive.

It's quite a trek up the Glen, but in the weather we had it was quite a scenic walk and because the path was closed we had things to ourselves. Once we came off the main track the mountain soon came into view.

Fairly easy going a path most of the way up and then a grassy, stoney bank.
