Loop of the Tarmachan ridge on a beautiful evening.Nicky C24/06/2020
A cracking walk today. Very clear views. Meall nan Tarmachan plus 4 other tops (SE top, Meall Garbh, Beinn nan Eachan and Cread na Caillich). Discovered after Meall Garbh that the rocky scramble off there was avoidable by going down the Grassy slope never mind. Just over 5 hours.tsharp17/09/2019
