Level crossing parking area. After crossing the railway line I took the track on the right before coming to the entrance gates to Dalnaspidal Lodge. After passing through the gate and walked towards the bridge over the Allt Dubhaig

The track heading off along the North side of Loch Garry. I turned off to the left and walked alongside the river glade towards the bridge over the outlet of Loch Garry

The bridge over the outlet. Once over the bridge I walked back East a few meters to pick up a ATV track heading up the North East shoulder of Meall na Leitreach adjacent to a stream on my right. This track takes you right up to the small cairn gradually heading West along the summit

On the way back a view of Dalnaspidal Lodge, where it would appear a fair bit of improvement work is going on.
