1NN6086137887 From the car park take the footpath signed for Ben Lawers, crossing a boardwalk and then passing into a fenced enclosure of regenerating woodland in a strip along the course of a burn. Climb towards the top edge of the fenced strip, where the path cuts right to gain open hillside. The route is obvious climbing to gain the southern shoulder of Beinn Ghlas; this soon leads to the summit.
2NN6254140472 Descend the shapely northeast ridge (the edge may be corniced in winter) to a col below the squat dome of Ben Lawers, then climb the well-used path to the country's 10th highest summit. As it climbs, this path crosses a steep slope above a crag, so if there's icy snow underfoot then don't slip.
3NN6354441420 Return the way you came... unless you've got spare daylight and energy, in which case nearby Meall Corranaich is a worthwhile third Munro tick.
