A nice easy hill with excellent views at the top.Many of you will have looked at it on the way from Fort 'william to Glencoe opposite the Corran ferry.Came off the ferry and turned right,along the road for about half a mile,roughly opposite the transmitter.Through a couple of fields and I was heading up hill.

Started up the left hand side of the horseshoe,and made my way round to the trig point at the top of Drum na sgriodain below.Ben Nevis just right of centre.

Theres no definite path the way i went up,but its pretty obvious where to go,and most of it was pretty firm.A wee cracker if you have a few hours spare :)
