This was a Scottish Midweek Mountaineering Club day meet, due to circumstances there were only three of us. Parked at the car park on the A9 and walked up the track under the railway and crossed the Allt Coire Dhomhain, by a new looking bridge, then followed a developing although boggy in places track, up to point 758, from there the track improved and dried to the summit of Sgairneach Mhor, where we felt the full force of the wind. Headed round to the beallach, and found a good place to cross the haggy area, and on up to Beinn Udlamain, where we had first lunch. We now had the wind on our backs and followed the old fenceline to A' Mharconaich, the upper slopes around the summit appeared to be undergoing restoration, but there was an avenue to the summit. After second lunch turned west to the beallach and crossed up to Geal charn, which gave grand views down Loch Ericht and across to Ben Alder, from there returned to Balsporran and the car.
