With friend. From a camp in Glen Scaddle. We ascended the ENE ridge of Sgùrr Dhomhnuill. The weather was not so good as forecast, with some light rain. I went NW from summit of Sgurr Dhomhnuill to reach Druim Garbh a deleted Corbett. I came down via Gleann na Cloich Soochte. My friend went over Sgurr a Chaorainn and Beinn na h-Uamha. The latter is a Corbett I had previously ascended. We wondered if Sgurr a Chaorainn might be a Corbett too, since the reascent certainly exceeds 500 and there is a 760m contour ring. From the campsite walked out along Glen Scaddle.pwbellarby15/06/1997
