With two friends. From Morvich outdoor Centre. We walked up Beinn Bhuidhe. Then went over Faradh Nighean Fhearchair and Sgurr a' Choire Ghaibh with several ups and downs. The only slightly awkward bit was the steep descent on some slabs. We reached Meall an Fhuarain Mhòir (956m) and then to the main summit of Beinn Fhada. We descended NW to reach path as it passes top part of Allt Coire an Sgàirne. Clear and dry initially. We went into mist up Beinn Bhuidhe, but came out of it so that traversing the various tops was done in bright sunshine with much cloud below us.pwbellarby09/05/2004
