From there I walked the track to Inverchorachan before starting up the hill. I wanted to do the same loop as described on walkhighlands which ascends on the south track up the side of the burn and returns down the more northerly side of the burn. The ascent track was very wet and boggy in places and needed some scrambling.
Nearing the top where the tracks join, the weather closed in, it started to rain, the mist came down and wind strengthened a lot â€“ once again, a top with no views.
On the lower reaches of the descent there wasnâ€™t really a track but the ground was fairly soft and not too difficult to walk on. The weather had cleared though so I could get some good views down the glen. Not many photos though because of the weather.

Great pics and info on the hike, planning on doing this one on Saturday with a few friends. Currently in debate about the best way to tackle it though. We very rarely take the bikes and are usually quite keen on just hiking however looking at the OS map and your comments I'm wondering if we should.
Would you recommend cycling for the start and end or do you think it would be just as enjoyable on foot the whole way?

Have been eyeing up Ben Alder and the grey Corries and wondering how far it is possible to cycle down the access roads for those routes...not much info on here about that though?

smudger71 - I have a gpx of my track but it's very similar to the one on walkhighlands so didn't post it; when I was there, there were two other cyclists; one left his bike beside mine but the other took his right up to Inverchorachan which isn't supposed to be done
JonnyMG - most of the way is on a surfaced singletrack road and it's only towards the latter part that you're on to a landrover track - the views are a bit limiting given you're in the valley so I'd tend to cycle it especially as it's a there and back and the loop is after you start walking up the hill - hope you have a good walk on Saturday
