The last one lovely dayNozzer13/09/2013
Left camp beside River Calnach at first light and ascended Druim Leac a Shith and then on to the summit. Lovely cloudless day again but a temperature inversion had caused the valleys to fill with mist. There looked like an excellent way to contour from Mam Barrisdale via two mid way lochs. Whilst returning to the tent, we met a dutchman who claimed that the weather was always like this when he came to Scotland, so we asked him to let us know when he comes again. After lunch back at the tent we proceeded upstream in order to get to our planned camp at Lock Quoich. However this proved difficult as the delightful valley closes in and becomes an unpassible gorge where it turns west. Mrs Mindlessflogger was a little perturbed that she wouldn't ever leave knoydart, but an ascent up deep steep veg on the north side landed us on the path from barrisdale.mindlessflogger12/07/2013

Camping with friends about the 350m level on the Barrisdale – Mam Barrisdale path. Circuit of Luinne Bheinn and Meall Buidhe. From Sgurr Sgeithe I went back up the ridge to the South-east Top of Meall Buidhe and on to the main top of Meall Buidhe. From Meall Buidhe I went down westward and stopped for a bite to eat. I continued up to the summit of An t-Uiriollach I returned to the col with Meall Buidhe and went down the glen to the north, keeping well east of the burn. I reached the Mam Barrisdale track and walked on it back to the camp site. Very good walking conditions - dry with a breeze.pwbellarby01/06/2008
