Summit is a long way from the path, you would not go over it by default on a walk between Meall Buidhe and Luinne Bheinn. Unexpected promotion.alda21/06/2018

Camping with friends about the 350m level on the Barrisdale – Mam Barrisdale path. Circuit of Luinne Bheinn and Meall Buidhe. From Luinne Bheinn East Top I took the path heading towards Meall Buidhe. I deviated slightly off the path to reach the summit of a top of about 800m*. The path then goes over the slopes of Druim Leac a' Shith (839m), avoiding the summit. I went to the summit. This is a Corbett Top. I rejoined the path, going to Bealach a Coire and continuing up towards the South-east top of Meall Buidhe. I contoured round above large rock slabs to join the ridge to get to Sgurr Sgeithe. * Subsequently determined that this is Meall Coire na Gaoithe'n Ear as listed in DBIH.pwbellarby01/06/2008
