A short rest then on to 218429, the bealach between these tops was quite boggy. Carried on southeast picking a way up the steep slope to Healabhal Bheag, there were good views in all directions, the best view being Loch Bracadale. Following a faint path northeast i shortly came upon near vertical crags, backtracked a few mtrs then headed north and found a way through steep but not dangerous ground. There was no path now, i could see a white building at GR 249459 and so headed straight for it, a good marker. A little rough going, and tired legs didn’t help, but a pleasant enough walk back following the river. About 12 km distance and 800 mtrs of ascent.

They are a good outing for something a bit different though, and great views if the weather is good.
Here's Cameron McNeish's video of walking the Tables, the same way round as canisp and the opposite way to the walk description:

Nice to see a report on these - we walked out to Idrigill Point but never did the Tables. A walk for another day.
