Uisinis, Gormol, Ciopeagal Bheag, Caiteseal, Beinn Mhor and walk out to Eisgein. This one was pretty easy from the loch shore, though a long way out.jenx11/05/2016

(From Gormol). Downhill over rough wet boulders, grass and sludge to a deep slit and out across open moor. A long mile over minor streams to gain the foot of the ridge. Mother golden plovers flying off with plaintive cries. Eric made for the north top, I trudged around for 1 1/2 miles directly to the top at 15.05. Shook hands again to celebrate.
