Parked at the bridge just past the cottage and took the path alongside the burn to its highest point. We left it here and headed to the summit. We had planned to return the same way as we left lunch in the car, however we saw a track from the summit to the north of the Lochan so decided to take this route. This involved a short road walk to the car to pick up lunch before making our way to Cruban Beag. This was over pathless heathery terrain as we headed to the col between the two tops west of Cruban Beag. The sun was now out and when we reached the summit we sat and had lunch before making our way back to the car.
