I did this walk after a month of hot dry weather but it’s difficult to imagine what it’s like in the wet. I want to make two points because there are good routes on WalkHighlands already (e.g. https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/blogs/steverabone).

I can’t emphasise enough that if you cross the fence at the earliest opportunity after turning off the construction road / bridge there is a clear, though inconsistent, path close to the east bank of the Féith Talagain all the way to the stile at which point the path is much clearer to the Allt Coire nan Dearcag (see picture of path beyond stile, looking back). Do NOT be seduced into following the Land Rover track which drifts away to the right and away from the fence as you leave the construction road, just cross that fence.

Once across Allt Coire Nan Dearcag don’t assume you’ll find a path again, I never did but in good weather all that means is a tedious yomp to the top.
Good path between stile and Allt Coire nan Dearcag
