25th Solo. From Brodick, follow track along Glenrosa Water, ascend Beinn Nuis, then follow the ridge for a clockwise circuit of the three Corbetts, walked out to Corrie for bus on A841. This is a very fine outing, and the equal of almost any ridge on the mainland interesting scrambling between Beinn Tarsuinn and Cir Mhor to stay on the crest of the ridge and again in the descent of Cir Mhor. Cool, dry, overcast day, but cloud above summits.RGibbs26/07/2015
