12.5 mile circular from Achlean up normal path over Carn Ban Mor and onto Sgor Gaoiths great summit, continued along ridge to Sgoran Dubh Mhor all on easy paths, we saw the showers coming and decided to descend over Meall Buidhe and Geal-Charn (easy rocky terrain), the descent off Geal-Charn started bouldery but turned into steep heather, then followed little path back into forest and along road to start. High cloud and showery weather, great views from top but cloud stayed on the Braeriach mass most of the day, passed 4 people all day.DanTrig16/06/2019

On the trek from M C Bhlair to S Gaoith I just had to come to the top of this hill. Nice cairn/shelter to have my 2nd lunch of the day. Wish I had more time to bag all the tops on this walk but at 18.6 miles I only managed 2 munros & 2 tops. More for another day.LizzieG14/08/2013
