Up from Lundie to Carn Ghluasaid on good stalkers path then over Creag a Chaorainn and on to the large cairn and wind shelter on Sgurr nan Conbhairean. Super view point but midges were terrible so I didn’t hang around on to Sail Chaorainn. Summit looked like rocky rib as opposed to the cairn. Then walked out to Carn na Coire Mheadhoin. Visited the cairn but this was clearly lower than the unmarked high point. Returned and took bypass path around Conbhairean to summit of Drochaid an Tuill Easaich. Managed to have lunch here as sun was out and midges had disappeared. Descent down Meall Breac. Dip in stream and walk back on old military road. Time taken 7 hours 5 minutes for 12.5 miles and 4278 feet of ascent.isabelle02/06/2023

Done as a part of a 3 munro day with Hazel and Gordon. Turned into a bit of an epic when wind tripled in strength, visibility vanished and planned descent route turned out a lot tougher than planned thanks to the full winter conditions.jonbowyer03/01/2015
