A great trail for a short day. Some great technical riding along with faster sections. The trails can get extremely wet and boggy if there has been rain so be prepared.

Start at the viewpoint 2 km west of the Torridon Hotel. Head west along the road for around 800 m to the start of a track signposted Loch Damph.
Head along this track and along the side of the Loch, past the fish farm buildings until it ends at a cottage
Continue on singletrack along the side of the loch until you reach a junction at a small wood just past the head of the loch and before crossing a burn.
Take the track that heads left to follow the burn at a distance. This path climbs up around the South side of Beinn Damh, with some technical ascent and short sections of pushing/carrying (for mere mortals) until a bealach is reached between Beinn Damh and Beinn na h-Eaglaise
The track now descends with varying trail surfaces; some hard and fast, some loose and technical until a burn is reached at which point you must go up the burn a short distance to find a suitable place to cross before descending through a small forest until the road is reached just West of the Torridon Hotel.
Head West along the road and back to the car.
