Ben Griam Mor from the road

I parked approx 500 meters east of the turn of for the Gavault Hotel in a parking place on the north side of the road and walked back 100 meters west to the track to Loch Coire nam Mang.

Track to Loch Coire nam Mang.

Follow the track north for approx 1.5km where there is a small wooden bridge over the ditch beside the track and head east up the obvious ridge to the summit

Ben Griam Beg from Ben Griam Mor

From the summit i headed directly towards Ben Griam Beg which was a bit steep in places it would be better to head slightly towards Loch Druim a Chiliabhain to miss some of the steeper sections.There is a small burn at about 240 meters that required a run and jump to cross and for a few hundred meters it is a bit boggy until you gain some height.

Looking back to Ben Griam Mor from Beg summit

From the summit it was just a case of dropping down to the lochs and following them around until you regain the track south of the boat hut on Loch Coire nam Mang and follow it back to the road.
