Parked at church in KLL then up path behind and crossed LR track to Loch Eilde Mor. Followed path diagonally up across minor streams and round eastern side of Sgor Eilde Beag, round the back of the lochan and steeply up path of loose scree and rocks to summit which was in cloud. Cloud cleared after we got back down to lochan.Ellie's Hills01/01/2020
