A cracking walk today. Very clear views. Meall nan Tarmachan plus 4 other tops (SE top, Meall Garbh, Beinn nan Eachan and Cread na Caillich). Discovered after Meall Garbh that the rocky scramble off there was avoidable by going down the Grassy slope never mind. Just over 5 hours.tsharp17/09/2019

Descended over the SE top (a newish Munro top) to reach my car which had been positioned at the Ben Lawers Visitor Centre. Weather good.pwbellarby29/06/2003
