Bridge works on-going so marked parking place out of action. Easy approach to summit from North.Tony S15/08/2018
With K from track end marked as a parking place on 1:50k north of Achfary. Straightforward. Local advice was that stepping stones across loch further south are sporting and anyway they deliver you at the foot of the crag which must be bypassed.Ashley29/12/2017
What a comedy. No problem with stepping stones or rotten bridge. Climbed obvious ravine 150m down alongside loch to scramble out over buttress onto the ridge. Sanity broke out choosing to descend N around crags (probably quicker).Eddie24/08/2016
Great fun on the stepping stones, though the boards on the bridge in the middle suggest an attempt to discourage use. The ascentlooks intimidating but is fairly straightforward up rock and heather slopes to the north. Don't try to shortcut the path, as the area east of Loch nan Ealachan is a floating bog - best to stick close to the cragsColin Crawford16/06/2016
