Backpacking route, 2 nights in the hills on a long circuit. Walk along track on S side of Kinloch Glen past quarry, then SE to Mam Tuach and along undulating ground to climb Am Mam and Meall Breac. Longer climb to top of Barkeval and careful descent W then N to reach easier ground, then across to fine summit and viewpoint of An Dornabac. Took a contouring route to climb Gualann na Pairce then up Glen Duian to climb S ridge of Ard Nev. Continued to Orval (outstanding viewpoint) and further W along ridge to descend very steep ground of Sron an t-Saighdeir and on to Bloodstone Hill. Descended SE to join a rough path heading E then short climb to Fionchra. Continued to Minishal, Monadh Dubh, Sgaorishal and Mullach Mor. Descended SSW to reach path and return to Kinloch. Some outstanding sunny weather and views.RobertP08/07/2024
