Parked at the end of the road in Glenbanchor.
Started up the track by the Allt a Chaorainn which becomes a path then splits to follow the route close to the Tom Dubh a'Ghobhlaich. This makes its way up over the moorland to the col at the top of Coire Dubh. Followed the path North East to the summit of A'Chailleach.
A faint path and moorland are then followed North East to Carn Sgulain. This is across very open, exposed moorland. Tricky if it was misty.
Plateau is then followed round towards Am Bodach from where a path can be followed all the way back down the glen to the start point.
Not the most interesting of hills but tops gave good views over towards the Cairngorms. Quite easy walking.
