Easy cycle from Keiloch. Round some new forest planting and summit easily found.NormanW01/08/2017
BBRW! After Alvie.Martin R11/11/2014
After ascending Meall Alvie I descended from the summit northeastwards, heading for Craig na Spàine. The initial descent was not altogether easy on account of thick heather cover and steep ground with lots of holes. Eventually I came across a sort of path, formed by cutting the heather. Although it was steep in parts, it made for a relatively easy descent. From col I followed forest roads which ended quite close to the summit of Craig na Spàine. At the summit there is a small, nicely built cairn. The summit is on a small hummock. There is another hummock a short distance SW which I also visited. It might be higher than the hummock with the cairn but it is difficult to say because of the trees. There is no cairn on this second hummock. I descended to reach the track going from Keiloch towards Inver, which I followed back to Keiloch.pwbellarby08/08/2010
