Sgurr a'Choire-bheithe ridge with tops from road by Loch Quoich. No problems with river crossings on this excellent day in dry spell. Descended into Gleann Cosaidh on return but unclear whether this saves any time. Just over 10h. Impressive ridge and excellent views to Knoydart, Ben Aden, Sgurr na Ciche.RobertP27/05/2016
