Started at the Dalmunzie Hotel car park and headed up Glen Lochsie, the landrover track starts at Glenlochsie farm and leads all the way to the summit. From the summit down to Gleann Mor stalkers track is the only section of this walk where careful navigation could be neaded but as we had clear blue skies we could see our route clearly. From the stalkers path in Gleann Mor the path to Carn an Righ is well defined all the way to the summit. From the summit we retraced our steps down to where we originaly joined the track and continued east until we reached Loch nan Eun. A nice spot this for a bit of lunch before tackling the long walk down Gleann Taitneach back to the hotel. Take care not to miss the foot bridge at the bottom of the Gleann that crosses the burn before you pass the hotel. A long walk this at around 25km with 1400mtrs of ascent but most of the way is on good paths with great views on a clear day.
