Love navigational puzzles. This one is great for finding a direct but safe route back to Ling hut as possible. As ever, when descending, you dont see the crags until you are almost falling down 'em. Yippee ki-ya, Marilyn bagger.Martin R02/10/2014

Fom Coulin Farmhouse with Grant, Rod and Stephen in an anticlockwise loop. Sgurr Dubh is the better hill but the walk is great though could be awkward in mist.SS16/06/2014
