From Strawberry Cottage with a friend. Having ascended Stob Coire na Cloiche we followed the ridge to Sgùrr nan Ceathreamhnan. We continued to the W Top. I used a compass to navigate off over point 910m, Beinn-an t-Socaich. Lower down we were near Allt Beithe Garbh. We followed a path and track to again reach Alltbeithe. Here we had more tea to drink and invited the warden, Jill, to come to Strawberry Cottage that night, which she did.pwbellarby25/10/2006
