Rising above the upper reaches of Strathconon, Bac an Eich is a neglected Corbett offering some fine views. The route described here uses stalkers' paths which loop around the mountain, avoiding the steepest slopes and ascending from the back.
Good stalkers paths around the hill; higher slopes are pathless.
