From parking area at NS309987 in Glen Douglas. Solo. After reaching summits of Doune Hill East Top, Doune Hill, Beinn Lochain and Cruach an t-Sìdhein descended back to the col with Beinn Lochain. Brief hail shower. Found and followed a narrow path that made a traverse across to the Beinn Lochain - Beinn Eich path. Went over Beinn Eich and down to Edentaggart. Up Glen Mollochan on track and then a track not shown on OS 1:25,000 map to get me back to Doune farmhouse and Glen Douglas.pwbellarby29/04/2018
