Parked up at the forrestry car park opposite Innerwick, went back to the road turned left, crossed the bridge then left again and over a gate and up the track, through the woods and onto Beinn Dearg. Originally i'd only planned to do Beinn Dearg and Meall a' Mhuic but as it didn't take as long as i thought to get to Beinn Dearg i decided if i got over to Meall a' Mhuic in 1 hour from Beinn Dearg i would continue on and do Cam Creag. It took 1 hour 20min, but i decided just to go for it as it was a nice day. So after Beinn Dearg it was a case of skirting round Meall Glas and down towards the Lairig Ghallabhaich and crossing the track to climb Meall a' Mhuic. From here i headed west and up onto Cam Chreag's north ridge. From the summit i headed down the south ridge then east to pick up the track back to the car park.

Completely missed this report at the time! I'm a bit jelous as I did this route in a white-out and saw nothing of any interest. Annoying as the views seem to be pretty wide ranging.
