9peaks Rhinnes of Kells , best of sunshine amazing view. Good path and track most , wet at times but easy to avoid. only one short section after leave the mine to ascent to the bealach. Then after the last peak, descend route path jumping btw the stone fence and wet at places, a quite steep section before enter the wood, care need to be taken as terrian wet and rocky and steep. Had car shuffle , started at north carsphain village, there’s a few parking spaces on both side of the road. Cross the bridge and heading to Coran of Portmark as the first peak of the day, then follow the ridge with a small detour to Cairnsgarroch ,. End at forest lodge car park.
