With May.mainnirnamfiadh15/07/2004
On way back from working in Thurso. I drove south via Forsinard to Kildonan and followed the Kildonan - Lothbeg road. This road has very few passing places. It looks like an old road judging by the old stone bridges. There is plenty of grass growing on the road surface. It is not gritted or kept clear of snow in Winter. I left the car at NC934172 and walked up the hillside more or less straight to the summit of Ben Uarie. There is a trig point inside a shelter. Then on to the summit of Beinn Dhorain. There is a cairn. This is a Graham. Went down SE slope to some cairn/structure and then N to burn, E to road and up road. Passed a man digging peat near the road.pwbellarby30/07/2003
