Not a brilliant day, a lot of it in the cloud which meant I lost the line coming down Cranstackie but ho harm done. On usual access track past the farm buildings and roughly followed the stream. Cut off south well before the bealach which was not a good idea as it meant a lot of untrodden boulder slope as I approached the top of Cranstackie (C); - stick to the bealach approach. Crossing over the bealach had a good sighting of a Golden Eagle before going up Beinn Spionnaidh (C). Even in cloud found my way easily to the NW ridge and down.dickscroop05/08/2019
