Parked up and cycled up the track to Bendronaig Lodge, the track surface was really good but there were some steeps that had me off and pushing. Left the bike at the bothy, which is still locked up, and walked up the path toward Loch Calavie, leaving the track at the highpoint and working through the crags to the summit. It being a Sunday and so no stalking, decided to head along the ridge a ways before dropping back down steep slopes to the lodge. The cycle out was easier, but the brakes were getting very hot on some of the descents.
