This is a straight forward family walk on a track which has been used for generations of travellers, although rough in places the route is always clear. It begins on the South Loch Earn road.
The white painted castle of Edinample is beside the loch and on the other side of the road, just before the stone bridge, there is a car parking space. From here there is a farm track leading to Glen Ample past the falls of Edinample to the left. The track curves left alongside the river Ample.
At the point where the track crosses a concrete bridge giving private access to the farm leave the track and follow a footpath that leads along a grassy bank between the river and a high deer fence. It leads to a small wooden bridge where you can now cross the river.For a short way follow the deer fence to your left until the path swings right to cross the burn.
There is a post with arrows, ignoring the red arrow pointing left carry straight on, past the ruins of old shielings, with the remains of a drystane dyke alongside the path in places. The track becomes wet in places and crosses several small burns before climbing to the top of the pass.
As you begin the descent to Loch Lubnaig side, crossing below Eas an Eoin, (the waterfall of birds) which tumbles down a deep gully on the shoulder of Ben Each, (the hill of the horse). A stile over a deer fence leads onto a forest track; follow it down hill and, passing through a gate, continue down hill crossing a stile and swinging round to the right beside a building to join the main road at Ardchullarie More.
