Along the mine track from the Forestry Scotland CP North of the Keltney Pass, cutting across damp heather to Ciochan a'Chop, following the low ridge across to the summit of Meall Tairneachan, visiting Creag an Chananaich, Meal a'Bhealach and the South and North summits of Creag and Loch from the mine track and traversing below Meall Tairneachan to its West Top and Meall Odhar Mor. The deer fence en route to the track can be crossed at the locked gate where two fencelines meet: you can either climb or wiggle under the wooden fence by the gate. Panoramic views from all these tops.Nick Down106/10/2021
