Other routes and challenges
The usual approach is from Alltbeithe as given; Alltbeithe itself can be reached most quickly via the boggy walk in from the Cluaine Inn, or from Morvich via Gleann Lichd or the Bealach na Sgairne, or - most scenically - up Glen Affric.
The alternative is an epic route up Glen Elchaig - perhaps making use of a mountain bike - a route which also enables the ascent of Mullach nan Dheiragain.
