With Jonathan and James. From Cluanie Inn, going up grassy slopes, finding and using parts of an old stalking path – little used, and joining SE ridge of Sgùrr an Fhuarail. Reached the summit of Sgùrr an Fhuarail and went along to Aonach Meadhoin. Returned to Sgùrr an Fhuarail. Went down to a point somewhat west of Bealach a' Choinich, and up to Ciste Dhubh. Ciste Dubh was Jonathan and James’s last Munro. We went over Aonach Meadhoin since that was James’s penultimate Munro. He had earlier in the day done Blaven as that had to be done as part of his Munros. We returned on path going all the way from the summit of Ciste Dubh via An Caorann Beag to the road – very wet and muddy. We had a celebratory dinner at the Conchra Hotel with Anne and Helen.pwbellarby06/07/1996
