Rear disc brake cable routing help!

I’m building a new frame that is specced for both rim & disc brakes and have decided on using disc. The frame however has the rear disc mount on the chain stay, has no cable fix points and no obvious cable routing from that position. To use the existing rim brake cable fix points (underside of top tube along and down the rear triangle) the only way I can see is to form a big loop in the cable from the forward pointing cable direction out of the calliper, back under, back round and up to the fix point. That would leave a large cable loop which is bound to snag and looks weird too! Any other suggestions to remedy this issue will be gratefully received, thanks in advance!
