Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
1054 m (3458 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

An ascent via Tom a' Choinich, crossing over the Bealach Toll Easa is very straightforward, there is a bit of distance between the two mountains but the walking is easy on broad grassy slopes. The summit is fairly rounded with good views in all directions. Its best I think to descend directly south thus avoiding any crags and deep burns lower down. Its then a pleasant walk back out of Gleann nam Fiadh.
