Ascent Trip Report

ACW round from Glen Lochy Farm. An easy ascent via the track onto the shoulder W of Coire Daimh, detouring to Meall Garbh, with excellent views over Beinn na Sroine towards Loch Awe, rejoining the track to Beinn Udlaidh's cairns large and small, steeply down to the bealach and up to Beinn Bhreac-Liath (cairns small and large). BBL's N ridge is a marvellous aerial walkway, underscored by a small planning passing at eye level as it flew below Beinn Dorain. There is a high new deer fence towards the end of the ridge and a potentially awkward descent to Invergaunan - don't cut down much before the end of the ridge or you will encounter concealed crags. A pleasant walk along the B8074 to finish.
