Conival is in view from Inchnadamph but is rather retiring compared to the lower peaks such as Quinag. Composed of Lewissian Gneiss - one of the oldest rocks on the planet - the mountain gives a steep ascent with tricky terrain. The view is of an otherworldly wilderness of lochs and moors, whilst a fine ridge connects with the neighbouring and higher Ben More Assynt.

Other routes and challenges
An alternative route for the super fit would be a traverse of the ridge from Glas Bheinn in the north - over a great deal of rocky, rough ground, to reach Conival. A continuation to Breabag involves extremely steep and difficult ground to the bealach below Conival - perhaps better attempted in ascent.
