This was to be the start of a weeks walking in Skye but enroute was planned a nights camping at the Red Squirrel Campsite in Glencoe and a visit to the Clachaig Inn. Prior to that though there was time to knock off this Sub2 on the East side of A82 just North East of Loch Tulla, Glas Bheinn 501m which overlooks another Sub2 I had done earlier in the year Meall Mhor on the other side of the road.

Looking back at the parking area adjacent to the A82 I missed the feint path from the parking area and headed towards the fence line heading in the hill direction. (I returned this way on the return journey)

Fenceline followed then headed towards the low point of the undulating ridgeline. There are some very wet boggy areas to negotiate near the fenceline

Coming down I found a feint ATV track then path towards the parking area which was drier than the outward route near the fenceline.
