With: hb; From the car park, walked up Coire MhicNobaill, crossed the two bridges then scrambled up the south east ridge to the Horns (Na Rathanan). Supern scrambling over the horns in glorious sunshine, being followed by the beast od Alligin (a Collie which chose the stay with us rather than return to its owners who were half an hour behind us!). We descended to the bealach then walked up to Sgurr Mhor where we had lunch. We looked down impressive Eag Dhubh (Black cleft) on the path across to Tom nan Gruagaich. The descent path down Coire nan Laogh was tedious but gave good views back to start. This was a superb walk after so much rain. The paths have changed out of all recognition since my first visit in 1978.Ian Baines29/05/2019
