From Auchessan, track to Dun Rioban. Overgrown muddy Munro track, petering out to Sgiath Chrom. Sgiath Chuil and Meall a Churain. Had to force myself to drop steeply but easily to Meall Eoghainn. Steep climb, drop, climb to Beinn Cheathaich. Path to Meall Glas. Path then off piste to Beinn nan Imirean. Not too boggy. Bits of path SE then E over Meall Garbh to meet Munro path out. Opted for track for last km to Auchessan rather than stile and more long bracken. 23km, 1500m 7.5hrs. Felt harder than it should mainly due to very steep ground.Lynnebe10/07/2024
