Nice hill. Good circuit with Sgurr Dubh (slippery moor though). and really easy descent to CoulinGill01/01/2000
Cairngorm Club weekend meet at Ling Hut. With three fellow club members. After climbing Beinn Liath Mhòr. From the summit of Beinn Liath Mhòr we returned to the lochan passed on the ascent and then went on a compass bearing to west side of Loch Uaine. We struck steeply upwards through much boulders and snow. The wind was becoming very strong indeed, making it very cold. To avoid cliffs we went somewhat to the right to gain the SE ridge of Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine, not far below the summit. After reaching the summit we immediately began to descend NW. Below the snow line there was much ice, which made it tricky on the steeper sections. Lower down there was still much rough ground before the path was reached.pwbellarby11/12/1999
