Left Balsporran car park 9am on a clear bright Sunday, we crossed the railway line and went over the bridge then followed the path a short distance before turning right. We should actually have taken second right which would have taken us to Geall Charn, as it was we ended up wasting almost 2 hours and climbed another needless top ( Coire Beul an Sporain). Eventually we made the summit of Geal charn then carried on and conquered Beinn Udlain and A'Mharconaich. We ate a short lunch and set of down the easy but often boggy path back to the car park arriving 6 pm. Made it home for 8pm and enjoyed a well deserved malt.
