6 of 6: From Beinn Bhoidheach SE Top.ChrisR01/11/2016
Did the two grahams from the bridge on the track to Succoth. Easy finding the way onto both of them due to cleared forest and useful new tracks. Only 4 hours for both, without cycling, though got a bit of a lift down on a timber wagon.jenx09/09/2016
After Gabhar dropped back the way came but aimed 200m up the Alt Coire Lair to the old track, now part resurfaced and well visible from above. this then followed to join a new very good forest track used to extract trees, which runs up the West side of Bhalgairean. Becomes an excellent smooth hill path, and leads out onto the fell at GR 21086 24054. Easy thereafter but for a rickety deer fence. Weather breaking down but we had good views all around. Back same way and followed the new track to where it meets the tracks shown on the current OS 1:50k at GR 21756 24882 which then followed back down to the parked van.nordicstar09/09/2016
With D Roeder. Parked on road by Corryghoil (8:15) and walked up track to junction at 220245. Track NW for abt 100m, then up to higher track (not on map) to about 216243 and briefly through felling to open country. Then via gate at 219247 to summit of Beinn Bhalgairean (10:25). Returned to junction, followed track round bend to abt 220243, then steeply up through old felling through crags to broad ridge and summit of Meall nan Gabhar (12:30). Mostly dry but not v clear.
