Round of 5 Simms from Limekiln car park. Meall Odhar Mor, Clochan a' Chop, Creag an Loch, Creag a' Mhadaidh, Creag Chean. Surprisingly easy traverse between final two thanks to some decent sheep tracks.PGCE06/07/2020
A clockwise circuit of Creag Odhar, Creag nan Cop, Meall Dubh Beag, Meall Dubh Mor and Creag Chean, starting and finishing at the track from near Inchgarth. The track itself is nicely overgrown so is a helpful and non-intrusive route home.summitter26/06/2020
