Parked up on main road and cycled down track to Loch Vroan, along the rough road (walking may have been quicker) to the bothy behind locked lodge. The track extends another half km before becoming wet. Cut up the burn to the Bealach Gorm and climbed Ben Beag and Groban from there, back more direct to the lodge and out.nordicstar01/08/2016
The way straight back to bothy from the top works ok and river crossing fairly easy even after a lot of recent rain. A good day out.jenx01/08/2016
