Day 5 (I think) of the 1980 FSC trip. We started from a high (and relatively low-midge) camp on Cul Mor, dropped down to the back of Cul Beag, walked along the side of Loch Lurgainn (dumping packs at the foot of Stac Pollaidh for a lunchtime jaunt up there - well worth the detour) and then on to cross the neck of Loch Lurgainn by stepping stones (unique? Maybe ; but unusual, certainly.).
We camped again amongst birch trees at the side of Loch Bad na-h-Achlaise. That was bloody midgy.
