A good round after a doubtful start from Culnacraig. Increasingly windy as approached top of Garbh Coireachan (Gt) could hardly stand on summit ridge and almost turned back but pressed on in lee of hill, bypassed main summit which I had done before and on down to Speichin Coinnich (Gt) then over to Sgurr an Fhidlieir (G), Beinn nan Caorach N top (Gt) and down by Beinn Nan Caorach. Wind had progressively dropped through the day so a nice finish.dickscroop28/07/2019

From Beinn an Eoin. Slog down to Lochan Tuath very hard going. Up the gully south of Sgurr an Fhidleir not bad at all. Then returned to Culnacraig on the obvious and mostly easy sandy/stony/grassy path.Owen B28/09/2017
