MMC walk with Fraser, Malcolm and new guy Cameron. Dry overcast day. We came up the track to Leacann na Gall and onto Cruach na Capull. Retraced our steps when we met Fraser who made it to the top. 6 hours.alexmaclennan08/07/2018
Solo. Parked at the entrance to the churchyard at Inverchaolain. After reaching Cruach nan Capull I continued to Leacann nan Gall, going down to Green Knap and then trying to find a path shown on my OS 1:25,000 map and which goes westwards down into the glen. I didn't find the path. I joined a substantial track down the glen. This follows, for the most part, the line of a path shown on the map. It's on the west side of the burn and a little above it. It joins the track that is shown on the map. I followed the track down past Stronyaraig to the road. It was a beautiful summer day.pwbellarby07/06/2018
