Myself, Matt Brannan & Lewis Walker. Start from Inverar in Glen Lyon 08:30.
No issues with reported access restrictions by estate.
Diversions for walkers due to construction of access track for hydro scheme. If heading for Carn Gorm, then the diversion leads too far up hill away from the normal route,
Requiring a descent to cross the Allt Coire a' Chearcaill burn (difficult) and a tramp across braken hillside to meet up with original route.
Lewis bails out half way up Carn Gorm! It's called a hangover. He heads back to the car for a sleep.
Carn Gorm, wind becomes strong. Trig point pillar has fallen over. 11:30
Meall Garbh, undistinguished lump - cairn is covered on old iron fence posts. 12:45
Carn Mairg, very windy, lots of quartz stones, granite tors.14:00
