From the road end in Glen Moidart along to the dam and up Sgurr Gorm. Traversed southern slopes of Beinn Gaire at c550 which felt quite long but kept me out of the very wet going in Glen Forslan. Down to the saggy col and up Beinn an t-Samhainn. To Lochan Dubh then cut up to the Caorach col and up. Carried on over the succession of Tumps - all of the same nature, hummocky with wee rock outcrops but no difficulties. Turned south after Creag nan Lochan to the south top into more varied country then on to Cruach a'Ghaill which I thought the best viewpoint of the day. Off to the west over increasingly tussocky ground past the old wall south of Torr a' Bhreitheimh and down to the track from Dalelia which gave a nice end to the day. Nice views early on up to Croit Bheinn and Beinn Mhic Cedidh, and latterly down Loch Shiel and out to Muck, Eigg and Rum. Ground hard frozen all day so a dry round - would normally be much wetter. 7hrs.StueyB29/11/2023
Beinn Gaire, Croit Bheinn and some tops from road end in Glen Moidart. From Glenforslan climbed grassy slopes to reach shore of reservoir, then climbed by Allt an Fhithich and on to Beinn Gaire. Traversed to Croit Bheinn, returned to beallach and on to Beinn an t-Samhainn, Cruach nan Caorach and Cruach nan Caorach SW Top. Descended to Glen Forslan and back to Glen Moidart. Bright sunny conditions and outstanding views to the Rois-bheinn ridge.RobertP23/04/2022
