On the east side of Drumochter pass lies a range of rounded hill by a steeply rising moor, fringed by a series of heathery corries. This route takes in two fairly undistinguished hills on a undulating moorland plateau which can offer a real test of navigational skill in deteriorating weather conditions. The hills are easily accessed from the A9 road via a quarry track upto the plateau which also extends north & south on the plateau.
