With Jim (James) Bellarby and a friend of his. We walked from Inverey over minor tops to Geal Charn, and then towards Carn Bhac (920m top). We got separated in the mist. I went on to Carn a' Bhutha and on the return to the vicinity of Carn Bhac (920m top) met up with Jim and friend. They had no map. We went over 920m top and to main summit of Carn Bhac. To avoid problems with crossing burns, we decided to descend via minor tops to the south of Allt Connie, using track over these tops not shown on map. We walked down Glen Ey. It had been raining continuously, but not heavily. It had been misty but the mist was not thick.pwbellarby12/11/1994
