Miabhaig- Uisgnaval Mor- Teileasval- Sron Aird- Miabhaig walk. This followed a pattern becoming familiar- up rough, pathless terrain considerably eased by abundant deer tracks, good underfoot above 400m, deflected on descents on the ridge by solufluction terraces and boulder fields. Good walk along ridge to a fine summit with extensive views on a sunny, breezy day.pwheeler15/05/2019
