East of Drumochter Pass and behind A' Bhuidheanach Bheag, An Dun a is a long broad-shouldered Corbett hill with a grass-covered crest and heather-clad slopes overlooking the western shores of Loch Bhrodhainn.

Loch Bhrodhainn can be reached by cycling along estate tracks either from the A9 near Blair Atholl or from the Speyside way near Kingussie. From the loch, a circular route hiking up and down steep slopes and along wide grass-covered crests bags An Dun along with its neighbour A' Chaoirnich.

For a more adventurous hiking expedition, An Dun can be combined on a long hiking route detouring from A' Bhuidheanach Bheag and Carn na Caim.
