Circuit of Beinn a'Chlachair, its East Top, Geal Charn, Sron Garbh and Creag Pitridh from Moy Bridge . Outstanding views in all directions. Got so absorbed in watching two roe deer at quite close quarters that I fell into a hole between tussocks on the descent from Pitridh. Then, while resting on the sandy beach of Lochan na h-Earba, the wind switched direction and sand-blasted me with stinging quartzite granules...Nick Down123/06/2019
From west of Moy Lodge. Creag a'Chuir then via the 4 Sims. Made ascending traverse of Sron Garbh NW face - steep straightforward grass, and a convenient snow-free route today. Then to Geal Charn.RHW03/05/2014
