Solo. From road end just before Dorback Lodge. Used track SE. Where track is nearest summit of Carn na Farraidh I struck up hillside to reach that summit. There is a small cairn and the top of a peat hag that vie to be the highest points. Continued to Carn Ruadh-bhreac, Geal Charn and Carn na h-Ailig.pwbellarby29/09/2012
