from Cranstackie. Cloud rushing past in gale just overhead. Downhill to col and head down into wind looking for top of B S. (Later) decided that I hadn't got there - visibility 50 yards. Dog taking any shelter where possible. Very scary. Crab like progress down to top. Out of cloud to confirm view I wanted. Rain pouring down.arranc07/06/1994
Solo. From Carbreck. Walked along the track to Rhigoltir. Met an estate worker who I asked about stalking. He said my plans were OK. From Rhigolter I ascended the minor top WNW of Beinn Spionnaidh. Descended to the col and up the ridge to Beinn Spionnaidh. A short distance along the summit ridge was needed to reach the summit and trig point. The going was not easy due to large boulders with uncertain depth of snow, sometimes up to the knee or more. Views from the summit were very good. I descended to the col with Cranstackie where I met a man who was stalking. He asked me if I had seen a large stag, which I hadnít. He expressed surprise at seeing me there Ė I explained I had asked. He said he was going to stop and that it was OK for me to continue to Cranstackie, which I did. The mist was now down and no views were had. Descended steeply to the valley of Allt Coire an Uinnseinn and headed straight for Polla (very boggy) where I crossed an extremely rickety bridge.pwbellarby16/10/1993
