From Carn Feur-lochain on route to Beinn Tharsuinn.Jossker23/09/2022
A great circuit from Glencalvie. Bumped into Anne Butler and Ralph just before Diebidale, so we joined forces for the walk. Up Diebidale ridge using the obvious track, over Leaba Bhruic, down easy enough hags (with Bambi) and pleasant, steep climb to Beinn Tharsuinn. Wonderful easy going on tundra over Dunan Liath and Dunach Liath, just a few hags before the descent to the glen, finding a path of sorts further down but not the mapped path. Handy gap in deer fence around plantation, W of rickety stile, finding a good track down to the river after a short distance and nice riverside walk back to the main trackGill04/06/2022
Parked in car park at Glen Calvie road end for a circuit of 12 Simms, 1 HF and 6 other tops. 43km, 2000m ascent, 13 hours. 4/13. Visited both tops.PGCE08/06/2021

Continued over Carn Lochain Sgeireich, Carn Feur-lochain, Dunan Liath then Beinn Tharsuinn and camped by Crom Loch. In the morning on to Carn Crom-loch and return.
