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 :-x so we descended off the summit back down the path after having our lunch and a cup of tea. :D
Good day out and good veiws if cluds didn't exist :lol:
