From north of Achfary. Excellent track then path all the way to the col, made very good time in good weather.Owen B23/04/2019
A fine walk from the east, via Gobernuisgach Lodge, which features sculptures of wolves. Along the track, over the bridge, then up the ATV track which replaces the mapped stalkers path. Off piste when it heads the wrong way, and along the bumpy ridge, where the track reappears. Final haul up to the top for fine views of all my favourite hills. Down to Bealach na Feithe and down the track. A hot day and glad of shade in the forestry, but even so the final climb up from the bridge (good views of Ben hope) to the road is quick and easy.Gill19/04/2019

D elightful 2 mile gently graded well kept grass two track path up above a massive rugged glen to the left and into Bealach na Feithe. 1,500' Final 900' clamber up proved to be quite gentle, grass at first and a tundra like slope of flat stones - like a builder's yard.
