Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the wide track junction 500 yards N of Ballimore. Two deer gates cross the track ahead, the first with a slat missing from the wooden fence to its right, the next with a ladder-like wooden fence to its left. Crossed the river on at the track ford a few hundred yards before the cowshed and made my way on to Beinn Stacach's east ridge, making a circuit of the east top, Beinn Stacach itself, Beinn Bhreac, Taoibh na Coille, TnC south top and Meall Gaothach before cutting back east of TnC and south of Beinn Stacach into Gleann Dubh. Saw a fox lapping from a lochan near BS east top within a few yards of me.
