Set off to do the full loop but had to turn back at the junction with the alternative ascent due to amount of snow. It’s going to take a few weeks of warm weather to melt it!
Managed to find a trail that followed the river through the Glen to meet up with the descent off the hill to complete the loop instead of just returning the way I came in. Nice trails, easy to pedal mostly. Lost my long sleeve red top. Let me know if you find it!

Great descent. Fast and flowy with very few water bars. Definitely deserves its red trail grading as its not technical or steep. One of the best munro descents in Scotland.

Beautiful climb to an outstanding descent. Big day out but totally worth it.

Great descent. Best to ride straight up and back down. The majority of it is rideable on the way up and it appears to be quicker to do it this way than taking the black climb on trail forks.

Went down this route today! Wouldn’t attempt to try going up it with a bike!
No path lots of heather bashing. Only take this route if you like carrying your bike.
