Cairngorm Club Torridon meet with club members from the roadside at NH025611. After climbing both tops of Creag Dhubh we went over Sgurr an Fhir Duibhe and Sgurr Ban to Spidean Coire nan Clach (NB trig point is not the highest point). We continued to Ruadh-stac Mór and other tops. It was fine and clear until 17:30 and then heavy rain.pwbellarby26/09/1982
