Hi vizzavona; I did spot the path you mention on the map, but it was a bit off route for me, as I particularly wanted to descend into upper Glen Feshie via the Eidart, and time was short (I wasn't on the hill until 1330).


My route was a bit 'off piste' in places; I ascended the heathery north western slopes of Meall nan Sleac from the entrance to Coire Garbhlach; then picked up the Land Rover track there - it must be a miserable slog up the track from the bothy. After Mullach Clach a Bhlair I followed the track eastwards and then descended into lonely Coire Mharconaich; I then followed the banks of the River Eidart downstream to the Feshie - hard going !!! The route down Glen Feshie the next morning was pure magic though.


I intend to return; perhaps staying at the bothy this autumn if stalking allows, and I'll try that path out. As you say, pure Munro baggers miss so much.

You should have no problem with an overnight at the smartly upgraded RA Bothy.  Very little, if any, stalking done on the Feshie side of the Estate now and I guess now that the Gaick, upper Tromie, is now part of the enlarged Estate where any stalking will be done in that area? 
The Feshie area is becoming more of a nature reserve nowadays and the Estate, have at considerable cost, made the most luxurious accommodation available to walkers.
I recall an overnight camp below Tom Dubh just above where the two streams come together.
