From beach CP across the sand of beautiful Kiloran Bay, over a fence and grass to the concrete track. A zigzag pathlet up Carnan Eoin, passing primroses. Down to the telegraph gully and steeply up Beinn Bheag. Through heather down the far side to the track, leaving it to ascend Meall na Monadh. More or less in a straight line to Dun Crom - the electric fences were switched off. Round the obligatory tour des summits in the two highest rocky eminences. Too close to call: if anything the highest point on the scramble western top might edge out the phogrsphed summit in the eastern top. Back along the track and across the beach.Nick Down119/04/2019
