From Ceann Garbh and then down the east shoulder to the estate road. Probably nicer up than down.Alan Moore16/05/2018
From just N of Gualin House, accessing hills via Strath Dionard track. Excellent slabs climbing Cnoc a'Mhadaidh, then steeply to Ceann Garbh, andf ridge to Ganu Mor and A'Cheir Ghorm, returning along the ridge (cloud covered as ascended, but partial clearance at one stage providing fantastic views). Descended by same route except bypassed Cnoc a'Mhadaidh to SE.RobertP07/07/2017
