Approach notes

Best place to park is the entrance to one of the forest tracks at NN 390 818 (only space for a few cars, don't block the whole thing!). Follow the forest track on foot for a few hundred metres until a ride appears on the left. Head up the ride (North). This cuts across to a higher forest track. Head right along this track, then keep left at the next junction. This track now heads all the way up to Coire na h-Uamha with the mountain and crags on your left.
