Parked S of Inchnadamph at 248200, crossed river and headed up Allt an Beithe to Meallan Liath Mor, then up Canisp. Descended NW ridge to lochan at 193196, (lovely views across to Suilven), then crossed narrow strip of land inbetween two lochans at 197199. Crossed at Feidh an Leothaid at 211200 then climbed to SE ridge of Beinn Reidh. Around N tip of Loch na Beinne Reidhe to Beinn Gharbh, then a detour to the north top at 216227 for a lovely view to Quinag across Loch Arkaig. Followed the string of lochans to SE of Beinn Gharbh and then the Easan Dubh down the hillside. Picked up landrover track (not on OS 25000 map, but shown on Harvey's map, though it goes much further up the hiil side) back to the car.Clive G14/05/2015
