We decided we would complete the round in a clockwise direction so we ignored the signpost pointing towards the 'hill path' (it becomes the return path) shortly after leaving the car park and headed towards the the ruins of an old tower at the farm. Here you carry straight on, there is a sign stating pedestrian access to Gorton. The going was good underfoot along the 'landrover' track and we soon reached the Allt Ur, there was hardly any water in it and it was easily crossed. Further on there is a bridge which allows you to cross the 'Water of Tulla' and stay on the track which runs alongside the river, adjacent to the woods, which is the much drier side of the river. The early views of the two hills we were tackling were superb in the early morning sun.
As we reached the head of the corrie the bulk of Beinn an Dothaidh towers above you. Apparently some people include this Munro in their round. We had already climbed it but if we hadn't I can assure you it would have remained unclimbed today !
