Approach notes

After passing the Dalwhinnie Distillery, drive around 1km along the road and up the hill. At the top of the hill a private road on the left marked "Old Drovers Road" marks the start of the approach. Park on the verge, do not drive down the private road.

On foot, follow the private road passing under a house, then ascend the embankment to join the old drovers road again. Follow this crossing a stream a few times until you reach a fense. Cross a final time and follow a line of eletrical pylons until a waterfall sorrounded by trees is visable. Approach the waterfall and contour round the tree line until the crag is visable.
