Slioch / Fisherfield circuit from Incheril in hot sunny weather. Started with Meall Riabhach before joining the Slioch ridge to climb Sgurr Dubh, Far South Top, South Top, Trig Point and summit. Continued on the ridge to Sgurr an Tuill Bhain, retraced steps a short distance along ridge before descending to bealach and climbing Meall Daimh (fine viewpoint). Descended to Lochan Fada, then climbed towards Beinn Tarsuinn, contouring past summit to climb the pinnacle Suidheachan Fhinn. Returned to join path near E end of Lochan Fada and return to Incheril via Heights of Kinlochewe.RobertP20/05/2024
