Parked up on the north bound lay-by on the A82 and headed across the road to start the walk on the road leading passed Derrydaroch farm.

Headed up the glen initially keeping the Allt a' Chuilinn on my right

Crossing the Allt a'Chuilinn (view looking north back to Derrydaroch) to begin the ascent to the ridge

Headed up to the right of Meall nan Tarmmachan to Garbh Bhealach

Picked up a gravel path on the ridge and followed it towards Beinn Chabhair. The summit ahead ...

Had a wonder about the top before heading back. On the return I went down off the ridge earlier, heading to the right of Meall nan Tarmachan. Great weather, a really picturesque walk up Allt a' Chuilinn followed by outstanding views from the summit.

Can remember starting this walk from Inverarnan and finding it somewhat boggy - this does look a nicer approach on a great day - one to think about if am up there again - cheers :)
