Lovely warm sunny day. Left car at Ardvorlich at 07:50. Back at 16:35.
Great views of lowlands to the south and mountains to the north. Goats, deer and solitude on the Corbetts. Beinn Each was the highlight of the day - an aesthetic ridge and good views. The next highlight was the south ridge of BV which I partly descended before dropping into Bealach Gliogarsnaich to climb Meall na Fearna where I spotted a red deer and fawn.

Nice route! I've done all of these except Meall na Fearna but on both outings (one taking in the two Munros and one to Beinn Each) I didn't have the camera. Therefore no photos or TR! I will go back one day armed with the camera and do a route similar to what you have done. I was scoping it out a few weeks back when I was on Uamh Bheag to the south.

Also glad to hear the wildlife is still thriving up there. Apparently antelope have also been spotted in the area! :lol:
