Parked at Lubinvullin and followed track up alongside the burn towards Loch na h'Uamhachd. Just after the loch turned left following the fenceline up the hill as far as it went and then carried on up to the top. Not too much rain here recently so was nice and dry underfoot. Great views to the south with all the lochans sparkling in the sunshine but pretty hazy over the sea. Ate some easter egg to compensate :D Came back down off the hill to the south, heading for a good track which leads down to West Strathan and then completed loop along the road to the car. Back in time for high tea at the Craggan Hotel in Melness - an added incentive for walking on a Sunday. Perfect. :D
