I did a variation of this hike. I didn’t do it as an out and back but rather went off trail NW. So it was more of a Bynack More and Stac an h-Iolaire hike. Totaled 12.75 miles 3324ft elevation gain and completed it in 7.5hrs. I stopped twice to snack and I’m not sure how many times to take photos. I truly enjoyed the hike but if you’re not up for going off trail the out and back would still be incredible. The link below has a description of the hike and a gpx file you can download.

Great if you like trudging over estate roads & heather. The approach from the ski road cuts quite a bit, but can get tedious. Made up for by its prettiness and location... genuinely worth it.
