From car park on the Torridon – Diabaig road above Torridon House we followed the moorland path towards Tom na Gruagaich (922m/3025’) ascending it from the head of the corrie. We then descended north down the rocky ridge to the col and then up the ridge to Sgurr Mhor (986m/3235’). Not fancying the horns, we retraced our steps to the col and then picked our way off to the north towards the lochans east of Loch Toll nam Biast.
We then picked up a vague track towards Bealach a’ Chomhla where we were able to follow a much more distinct path which runs, initially, to the east of the Allt a’ Bhealaich before crossing the river by a bridge and dropping down to the car park.
Weather: bright, sunny, light to moderate winds, good visibility.
