From just before East Lodge, at the end of the public road on the S shore of Loch Venachar. A very pleasant circuit along the Rob Roy Way, continuing along the track at the lochan, SW along the ridge to the heathery summit, then cutting SW down a steep grassy gully immediately beyond to meet the Rob Roy Way again in a few hundred yardsNick Down113/04/2020
