Started this walk from the Morvich caravan site from where we cycled to the Clachan Duich burial ground car park, here we left the bikes and headed up the path. The path leads upto the col and although a bit boggy in places and stony, it is a good path. Once at the col you head east over a faint path again a bit boggy at times then rocky as you climb, all the way to the summit.
