Started from Loch Lubnaig, parking place half way up where road turns away from loch. Going through gate, up track, then climbing trail through trees, following course of stream until we reached forestry vehicle track. Turn left on this track, then a few hundred metres after emerging from trees, a sign post points you on to the path up Beinn Each. Steep climb, but excellent views from summit (as good as a Munro). From here follow path NNW down across dragonback to foot of Stuc A Chroin. Path is vague in places, but if you keep heading in same direction when you lose trail you should find it again relatively easily. Steep climb up the SW side of Stuc A Chroin, which is a bit Scrambly at times, but nothing too serious. Views were limited as cloud had moved in. Retraced path to foot of Beinn Each, then headed East down the side of the Bealach to return to forestry track. There is little in the way of paths here, but you shouldn't come across anything too steep to block your way. Finally return down track and path back down through trees to Loch Lubnaig. It's a challenging climb, if your not super fit, but very satisfying.
