Cycled from Dalnaspidal to the end of the track and left the bike near the waterfall. The cycle was effortless along the Lochside on a good level track. It is possible to continue on the bike where the track ends but i chose to walk from here. Atv tracks continue to the river then meets the other main track and also lead up towards Beinn Mholach. I crossed the river with no problems but there is a bridge futher up if in spate. After i crossed the river i started the climb up to Creag nan Gabhar with the ATV tracks aiding tha walking. Visibility was poor as i gained height and i didn't see much from Creag nan Gabhar to the summit of Beinn Mholach except when a small break in the clouds revealed the huge cairn and trigpoint on Beinn Mholach for a few seconds. From the summit i headed east and straight for Gualann Sheileach which is the same height as the Graham, Creag a' Mhadaidh but only the latter is a Graham. On my way down it started to clear and by the time i got to Gualann Sheileach, i had a clear view of Beinn Mholach and now wished i'd did the Grahams first. I then dropped down a bit to have lunch and also change my socks which were wet from the rain, thats what i get for walking in shorts and not putting my waterproofs on. I now headed for the Graham before returning back to the track, stopping off at the Bothy for a look, before heading back for the bike and back to the start. If anyone is walking this area or Dalnaspidal or Talla Bheith Forest keep an eye out for a missing dog which went missing last weekend. There is a post up on the general discussion forum. Cheers

Pity about the weather JC, I have these two noted for an early knock off!
