An Sidhean from the Loch Monar dam

Other routes and challenges

An alternative to the above approach is from Strathconon to the north, making use of either of two possible routes with stalkers' paths initially. Both routes are longer, and the River Meig is an obstacle.

Any combination with Bac an Eich would make an epic route.
