Detailed route description and map

An Dun and Maol Creag an Loch via the Gaick Pass

Other routes and challenges

Another - much longer - option would be to approach via Glen Tromie from the north.

It would be possible to approach over the plateau from Carn na Caim, with a steep descent and reascent. However the long approach and necessity of returning back up to the plateau deters this approach.
