A rugged horseshoe walk from the South Loch Eynort road. Trinneabhal, then a steep descent and bushwhack reascent to Airneabhal, where two I surprised two hinds as I reached the summit plateau, down again and the steepest ascent yet to Sheaval, descending its NE spur to the road. Timeless, majestic surroundings.Nick Down118/07/2017
