I actually passed this way a few weeks ago on my way to Ben Hope, but I never got this view due to low cloud!

I parked at the small layby just by the bridge and set off and quickly found the route was somewhat wet.

The path heads upwards and I took the direct route up towards the cairn.

Continuing on and downwards it quickly became boggy again, thankfully nothing as much as ankle deep.

Heading towards Creag an Lochain, the path heads left and along the side of the slope.

Eventually the path leads out on to the top of the wide ridge and offers a good view of the summit.

From here it's a steep climb up to the summit where the remains of a trig point lie amongst the summit cairn. A fantastic view.

After a spot of lunch I came down the same route and back to the car. The river is a handy location to wash your boots of all the mud from the bog!
