Caught up with Colin & Bert at Bealach Breabag and summited this hill with them.Dangerous Dave04/08/2007
With friends. From Dalwhinnie. After climbing Ben Alder we went S and SE from the summit to Bealach Breabag. We climbed up to the summit of Sròn Coire na h-Iolaire and then Beinn Bheòil. We continued northwards for about 1km before descending W to join the stalkers' path we had used to approach Ben Alder. We returned to Dalwhinnie with alternation of walking and cycling from near Culra as we were one bicycle short. One member of the party walked past a bicycle left for him without realising it was there. So recovery of bicycle by car.pwbellarby01/08/2007
