It seemed good day for walk, so I decided to go west end.... I passed Loch Maree and parked a house with green roof just before single track road.Then started hill walking.

Walked appx 6km on Ford to reach to Loch na h-Oidhche, but the river was too high to pass without wet... So I decided to pass there anyway, but the water height was almost my knee.

After passed the river, there was no path but grasses until the summit... As you can imagine this was fun for Corbetts walking anyway.
Still cloudy weather when I reached the summit of Baosbheinn, so I decided to traverse without waiting for the sunshine.
The view was great !!! :D
But actually, it was covered by small stones and steep, so that I had to hike down carefully.

Weather was gradually improved, Nice view from Ceann Beag to the South (Torridon side).

Glassy downhill without path was continued and reached to the south end of Loch na h-Oidhche.
Then I finally arrived a Bothy, but it was completely closed (due to Covid?).
From there, I started scramble up towards to NE... interesting Rocky and steep slope for 400m UP.
Finally I got more sunshine...

From the summit of Beinn an Eoin, I saw beautiful Loch with Baosbeinn.

It was easy for me to head down until flat area by followed path.
Then I walked through glassy area till Ford... Then back to Parking.

It looks like you had a good day.

Unfortunately the bothy is permanently closed.

Have you completed Beinn Dearg and Beinn Damh in Torridon; they are both great hills.

regards

John

Yes, I love both.
It was great scrambling UP to Beinn Dearg and the view from there was Great.
Beinn Damh has an attractive shape. So, I prefer to take the photo from An Ruadh Stac or somewhere from East.
