second visit to carn gorm after making a navigation error last time I was there and ended up on wrong trail.

standard view

and zoomed in
glen lyon 2a.png

on standard view guide shows two creag mhor summits and a meal na aighean summit which did not correspond to os map we had or gps unit, but if you zoom in on guide it show final summit as meal na aighean.
