Just thought I would post this route, as they all seem to be from Glen Roy up this hill. Which I am sure is shorter, but if coming from the A82 north, this might be a bit closer. Not much parking at the end of the road, but a few spaces there. Wet underfoot, but not boggy at all, just the usual soggy heather. Nice circuit, although no marked trails or established paths at all, just a matter of heading across the heather. The only thing I'd say to look out for is to make sure you skirt around the coire to the right as you descend slightly of Beith Og - If you just turn right immediately you'll head down some steep ground, just to have to climb back up. Not overly steep, no scrambling at all, the crossing of the Fintaig on the way back could be problematic in heavy flood I guess, was no problem today though.

This looks like a good route to pinch for when I get round to doing it :wink:

Yes, I would imagine that it was probably you. I was walking back from the summit about 200 meters from it as you were approaching the summit. Definitely 2 people and dog. Hope you had a good day - I assume you came up from Glen Roy?
Not much detail to be had by zooming in, but perhaps you recognise your jackets??
