1 of 8: From the top CP at Lynwilg: 875110.ChrisR29/10/2019
From Lynwilg, along the An Gleannan track before heading up minor trails to Creag na h-lolaire. From here followed a fence line to Carn Deag Mor and Geal-charn Beag. Relatively easy trek over to Real-charn Mor, before heading back down the main path to rejoin the An Gleannan track. A smaller path heading down to Ballinluig was next taken, leaving it half way along to bag Creag Ghleannain before crossing the Allt Dubh to get back onto the main track back to Llynwilg.summitter29/06/2019
