According to information from Mr Ramsay, the old military road turns from the line of modern A87 opposite the site of the memorial at the south end of Loch Shiel. It then heads southwards up the slope and from the summit gradually falls down to meet the main highway not far from an old soutterrain (MHG7462). <1>
