Climbed solo from A835 west of Loch Glascarnoch. Followed path on the West Bank of the Abhainn an Torrain Duibh (not marked on map). Ignore the track through the forest. Continue alongside Abhainn a Ghiuthais Li as far as the footbridge (also unmarked) at 252712. Ascended Meallan Buidhe (skirted summit), An Coileachan, Meall Gorm SE top and main top, Meall nam Peithirean, Sgurr Mor, Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich. Return via Craig Dhubh Fannaich (summit skirted) and back alongside outward route. Excellent conditions. Fine walk but long and rough walk in/out. Luckily very dry conditions - bogs would hinder progress.jamessteel10024/07/2018
