I was originally going to walk the WH route for Binnien Mor and Na Gruagaichean ,but once again I felt knackered so when I arrived at the turn off for Sgor Eilde Beag's ridge I made the decision to just carry on around the left of the Lochan until eventually reaching the west ridge of SEM. This ridge is eroded and crumbling and hard work but it's not too long before the summit is reached giving great views all around. When I reached the Lochan on the descent, I made my own way round to the left which took ages but I was just enjoying the area and solitude and wasn't worried about the length of time taken. I eventually joined up with the incoming track and was quite happy to just take the same way back to Kinlochleven.
