|Revisited for the ENE twin summit and attached P30. Very steep climb from road, a few crags to avoid.||RHW||10/06/2014|
|From SE via Carn Dearg, parked near houses, path passes L of first house, thru gate, over fence, then follows top edge of wood. Continued S then SW to Bhiorain, descending with care to cross gorge. 3 summits: SW-most seems higher; NE also has cairn. Both have 510m spots on 1:10k mapping so I'll revisit sometime to claim the tick.||RHW||22/11/2013|
