Parked up on the forrest track just past Lettermay, then followed the track for 1km before crossing the Lettermay Burn. We then made our way through the forrest where we picked up another track, which we were on for another 1km before heading up the south east slopes of Beinn Lochain. After reaching the summit we headed south, picking up a path at Bealach an Lochain, then leaving it to climb south west up Beinn Bheula. From the summit of Beinn Bheula we headed north east straight down the steep craggy slopes towards the forrest track back to the car, not a route i'd recommend as it was pretty steep in places and almost ended my relationship :D. We arrived down safely after a few we scares then it was a pleasant walk along the track to the car.

It was Paul but not as steep as coming down Beinn Bhuela. I did ask Kim if she fancied doing the sub 2000 Cruach nam Miseag as well, but the look on her face said it all :D

Wish I'd spotted this before we did Beinn Lochain last week, though by the looks of it, your route was just as steep as ours :lol: Nice craggy wee hill though!
