A new hydro track starting by the wooden bridge (NM 768823) and “Private Road” sign gives rapid access up the Allt a Bhuiridh valley. At around NM777814 a rough ATV track takes off crossing a bridge at NM778813. This track works its way to towards Beinn Coire nan Gall. You can then cut off to the summit at around 310 meters. It is also a handy route back for the more easterly Simms in this group.BaggerGutt20/07/2019
