Evening stroll around the southern ridge above Loch an Daimh. Parked below the dam, along the path to the obvious path marked by the cairn and then up the very steep path to the ridge, when on the ridge, the path is very pleasant with great views all round. 4 peaks, Creag an Fheadain, Sron Chona Choirein, Stuc an Lochain and Meallan OdharNicky C30/06/2020

From Loch an Daimh dam - plenty of parking at NN 51094 46373.

Then on good path over the two Tumps to steep summit cone of the Munro. Back be ascent route.Man of Kernow104/05/2014
