So after our longer than planned walk the day before we opted for a more 'relaxed' walk out to this remote loner.

A good path out it a bit dull to start with but once it turns more easterly great views of the two mountains can be seen.

The walk up to the summit is cursed with false horizon after false horizon, but its really not that strenuous.

The walk back down A' Mhuc though is largly pathless and for a grassy slope, quite hard going, but once back at the forestry its plain sailing
