I was the lone car when i parked up by the bridge just before Cashlie power station. I'd actually ended up here last summer when i took a wrong turn and set off on what i thought was Stuchd an Lochain! Doh!
I had a route laid out in my gps, but the estate information boards suggested a different, more appealing path up so i took that route.
Pretty much a case of heading across the bridge and straight up. There's a new fence running up and across the hillside, no stiles but there's a handy gate.
As you continue up round the side of Creag Loaghain there's an obvious waterfall that you can follow for a reasonable way up through this steep section. Some boggy ground after this but ti's straightforward up to the summit.
A far shorter route than that from Glen Lochay, but with two months away from proper hills and too much beer i think my time shows how much i toiled!

Always thought Ghaordaidh looked more impressive from this side.
