My last Scottish mainland Marilyn! Drove up private road a few hundred metres and parked by gate. Nice cycle along to East Rhidorroch where I left bike and walked up stony track leading to Cnoc Damh. From it's summit took direct line to Meall Liath Choire and back down to bike. Ground beginning to dry out giving mostly easy walking. Fortunately no stalking today.Bit hazy but still stunning views across to Coigach peaks.AndrewFinnimore22/07/2017
From Cnoc Damh. Receding summit. Very dry and good going. Could be very different if the terrain was wet. Three Tumps on way back. Majestic views to the west.Campbell Singer17/05/2017
The day after being turned back from the Glen because of stalking- mid July! we came back and drove to East Rhidorroch lodge having negotiated access on being asked to change our plan. Followed the track then the offturn stalkers path before bearing off at 300m on the direct ridge to Cnoc Damph. Therafer an almost direct line to Meall Liath Coire before descending to the track and van 1km short of parking spot by the lodge.nordicstar29/07/2016
