A really brilliant day for a round of all the Quinag tops starting from usual car park. Straightforward walkig all the way. Spidean Coinich (C); Creagh nan h-iolaire (Gt);Beinn Uidhe S top (Gt); Sail Garbh W top (Gt); Sail Garbh Far W top (Gt); out to Sail Gorm and back to Sail Garbh, back to bealach down to lochan and back to car. An Australian guy declared it the best mountain he had ever climbed and hard to disagree though certainly the weather helped.dickscroop02/08/2019
