Ascent Trip Report

A walk along the inverted L-shaped line of tops west of the reservoir. From Invergeldie, along the track, forking left, steeply up through bracken to the little promontory top of Creag nan Eun (416), across the heather to the next Creag nan Eun (524), rejoining the track en route to the East and main tops of Creag Ruadh, whose sloping summit slab conceals a precipice immediately beyond. Across peat bog to Meall Diamh, cutting a corner over awkward ground to Ruadh Meall and its plum pudding east top, then intercepting the track that runs along the west of the reservoir and back to Invergeldie.
