Meall a'Chrasgaidh, Sgurr nan Clach Gaela, Sgurr nan Each. Solo. Cracking day - no wind and no rain! Loads of deer. For info, head straight up to the ridge from 'Am Beachdaich (between the first two peaks), there is an excellent path on the top of the ridge to Sgurr nan Clach Geala which carries on all the way to Sgurr nan Each. Also on the way back at the top of the Allt Breabaig valley cross the river as there is an good stalkers path just on the far side.highlandchief18/09/2017
