Absolute belter of a day out. Glorious sunshine all day so was a nice lobster pink by the end :-/ Remote location but still met quite a surprising number of other walkers. Endless walk in to get to anywhere near any sort of decent height, bit of a hairy scramble to get up and down Beinn Dearg itself, rest of the walk was ok though, bit boggy and snowy from Meall nan Ceapraichean to Eididh nan Clach Geala so had to make own route across as any sort of beaten path or track was non-existent. View from top was epic unfortunately camera died. The wall that runs across the ridge has to get a mention aswell, possibly the most unbelivable (and pointless) feat of architecture known to man.
