An anticlockwise bag of Beinn Mheadhon, Beinn Thunicaraidh and Dun da Ghaoithe. It was only once we had crashed through the forest, as endured by others, and started to gain height did we see the new track constructed to build the new hydro system. Using the details below will make your circuit of these three hills much easier! Park at NM6794539696 and head up the track to junction and turn right at NM6793439629.

From Scallastle on way to Dun Da Ghaoithe.ngthack17/06/2017
A traverse including Sgurr Dearg, Meinnir nam Fiadh, Dun da Ghaoithe, Beinn Thunacaraidh and Beinn Mheadhain and diagonal traverse NE to road.Detoured south around bad step coming off Beinn Dearg, could not see a line from above, might have been more obvious from below. Final descent line had much poor ground, tussocks etc, would not really recommend it, there must be a better way. This apart, a good day.dickscroop14/04/2017
