I took a direct route from the bridge to the top of Creag a Mhaim yet two guys that were behind me on the road arrived at Creag a Mhaim summit before me using that longer route. My route up was pathless and greasy for much of the way.
I beleive that;s what my mate Jim did on his first trip there, and he fould it to be hard going. The path is twisty, but much more straightforward.

Best way is to leave your car at the West end. I left mine in the layby for The Saddle and held up a big card saying "Cluanie Inn" & got a lift within 5 mins - card went back in the boot of the car. Walkers are more likely to get a lift when they are clean and not smelly.
