The traverse of the Corbett of Am Bathach is along a fine grassy ridge, whilst Ciste Dhubh is a Munro of real character giving an excellent walk.
Mostly well-defined grassy ridges; the col between the peaks is boggy, as is the return walk down the valley. The flanks of the mountains are very steep.
Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness on A87 ask to stop at Cluanie Inn.
Laybay east of Cluanie Inn.
