After a couple of false summits the rockier summit, topped by  trig point and an iron cross is reached. Beyond Ben Ledi's summit the path  follows a series of fence posts along the crest northwards to a small cairn marking  the top of another path heading down to Loch Lubnaig.

Cross  the long bealach and a wet path aside fence posts is followed up a gentle  incline. The crest to Ben Vane turns south west.
