Looked at Rockhoppers description and plotted map. Cheers
Followed the same - almost.
Respect paid at the cairn to Glen Lyons fallen in both World Wars.
Heard a few shots ringing out and some far off voices. Nobody around to annoy me about stalking - so up I went
Reckon they were probably on Chesthill estate!!
Good long walk- in the Mist with no views.
Rain stayed mostly away which was a bonus.
Pretty much pathless all the way from the summit of Beinn Dhearg, down and up and over Meall A mhuic and down and up to Meall nam Maigheach.
Lots of thick heather and a fair few boggy small holes so watch your ankles.
Mist stayed around the 650m point so map and GPS were put to good use today.
Ended up doing 3 stream crossings today - not wide and across ok. ( you could probably make it 2 if you cross a little further down than I did )
Never saw a track from the summit of Meall nam Maigheach- it was probably a few yards on my right!! so it was cross country again all the way to the tin hut!
On up the path and over the peat and onto the "ridgeline
Not much to hang round for so it was back down and onto the descent track just before the hut.
Good track and good walk out all the way back to the car park.
