With: hb; From Achnashellach Stn, up the Coire Lair path to the bealach then steeply west and the south east to the narrow summit of Sgorr Ruadh. We dropped south east to cross the wide and complex Bealach Mor in order to gain the path up Creag Mainnricheean, then over Mainreachan Buttress to the summit of Fuar Tholl. The River Lair was in spate so we dropped south west to Carn Eididh then southeast to the railway level crossing before walking back along the road to the start.Ian Baines27/05/2019
