Meall na Aighean, Carn Mairg, Meall garbh, Carn Gorm. Started at Invervar. The hydro construction works diversion signing forces you to do them in an anti-clockwise direction with Meall na Aighean first and Carn Gorm last. In clouds all day. Getting off Meall na Aighean was a bit of a challenge, but after Carn Mairg the fence posts tend to make the navigation easier.tsharp04/06/2015
