long light showers & light wind.
Access: There is very limited parking at the N end of the dam. Otherwise there is parking at the south end.

At the start there is long, wet grass with vehicle tracks along N side of L. Mullardoch, gaining height to west. Note that the walkers' path along the N side of the loch leaves the vehicle track about 5 mins after the boathouse at the bottom of adip before the track rises away from the loch.
