Parked at Glen Artney Church car park, then walked up Findhu Glen, then ascenting up Beinn nan Eun (no cairn only a wooden post). Over Beinn Odhar then up to Uamh Bheag to see the carved wood face! Descenting via Meall Clachach, I stupidly carried on down the north face of Am Beannan was far too steep for comfort. The peat hags were extensive across the tops. Sunny intervals with a moderate breeze all day.chillyman807/06/2020
