Am Bathach is a lovely hill, easy to access, easy to ascend and with excellent underfoot conditions. As it is surrounded by Munros and with Loch Cluaine nearby, it gives excellent views. It provides a very nice route to Ciste Dubh and Aonach Meadhoin.
Regarding the route I took - I found the descent from Bealach an Lápach, west of Saileag, an unpleasant trudge down a steep, eroded and often very muddy path. Descending the South / South East ridge of Sgurr an Fhuarail towards the Cluaine Inn would be my descent route in future.
