We were staying at Fort wiliam and drove along to the Quoich where we began the assent onto Gleouraich 1 killomiter before a bridge that crosses over a small river that comes off of the Quoich. The path is marked by a carin at the side of the road and is covered by rodidendrums so be careful you don't miss the path. Once you get onto the path you head up a well marked stalkers path that zig-zags up a steep sholder. Once we reached the top of this sholder, called Druim Seileach which is at around 840m, from here we drouped around 30m onto a wide ridge, the path continues up a steep slope be careful this slope is covered in scree and lose bolders. there is no path after this, the path finishes with a stalkers shooting bunker
We were hoping to continue onto Spidean Mialach but it was very wet and cloudy so we descended off the summit back down the path after having our lunch and a cup of tea.
Good day out and good veiws if cluds didn't exist
