Parked at the entrance to the old road and took the track to the tree line before climbing steeply through the deep fern, hard going in the heat. Got on the ridge and it was easier going to the summit. I then made my way round to Carn Breac and then continued down the ridge and round the ridge to Coille Bhreac and back to the car.

I did this pair a few weeks ago but didn't get the weather you got! I really enjoyed Carn Breac and now wish I had returned via the ridge. Was the descent back to the path OK? As for Beinn na Feusaige, well, less said the better :( Enjoyed seeing them through your eyes!

Thanks. I descended down to the road from the ridge. As for the "path" it was typical Graham terrain, pathless, peat hags and rough :crazy:
