From the car park, I took the right-of-way towards Inver, via Felagie.
Meall Alvie from near Felagie:
On reaching Felagie, I set off along the track leading uphill. On reaching the fence, I skirted round it to follow the dry-stane dyke up the hill.
[A bit of advance research, using Google Maps, showed that the dry-stane dyke
runs from Felagie to the summit]
Track towards Meall Alvie from Felagie:
I really enjoyed walking through the wood on this hill. Trees are well-spaced
apart and mostly nice Scots Pine.
As I ascended, I wondered how long the dyke had been there and who had built it. It looked quite old.

I found the summit cairn with ease and was pleased to get some views from the
summit - often tree-clad hills provide no summit views.
Approaching summit cairn:

From the summit, I returned via the same route back to the car.
