12.5 mile circular from Achlean up normal path over Carn Ban Mor and onto Sgor Gaoiths great summit, continued along ridge to Sgoran Dubh Mhor all on easy paths, we saw the showers coming and decided to descend over Meall Buidhe and Geal-Charn (easy rocky terrain), the descent off Geal-Charn started bouldery but turned into steep heather, then followed little path back into forest and along road to start. High cloud and showery weather, great views from top but cloud stayed on the Braeriach mass most of the day, passed 4 people all day.DanTrig16/06/2019

Auchlean car park - Carn Ban Mor - Sgor Gaoith - Mullach Clach a'Bhlair. Clear day with great views accross plateau.wozzat26/06/2017
Parked at 853 013 and followed the forestry track which became a footpath to 876 000 where I struck up the West slope of Meall Tionail to its summit cairn. I then continued in the same direction to Meall Buidhe (MT) before continuing on to Sgoran Dubh Mor, the second Munro Top. It was a bit hazy here though still views to be had. Took the path South to Sgor Gaoith which was also a bit cloudy. On the opposite side of Loch Einich there appeared to be a large landslide, possibly the heavy rain from a couple of weeks back. I then descended in a Northwesterly direction back to Meall Buidhe and then continued along the ridge to the final Munro Top of Geal Charn, from here I descended over heather in a southwesterly direction back to the path and then out to the car.Peterb22/06/2017
