Climbed alone from Ballachulish via the north-north east ridge. Turned right immediately after the school and climbed very steep grassy heather slopes until a path is reached when the going becomes much easier. The path gaves great views down to Ballachulish and over to Glen Coe. Climbed Beinn Bhan first then Sgorr Bhan and then the beautiful curving ridge of Sgorr Dhearg. Desecended to bealach then climbed Sgorr Dhonuill. Returned to bealach then descended through forest towards South Ballachulish then eventually along road back to visitor car park at Ballachulish. Weather dry and sunny with slight breeze. Great walk which I would do again.
