The day dawned in Glendhu bothy to a dull morning with a high wind. This was a shame as we were really looking forward to the views today. We set off right, along the LR track towards Kylesku to the hydro works, turning right just past them to climb for about 3km.
We then descended the Bealach nam Fiann to Achfary Forest down to the A838 road and followed this to Lochstack Lodge. Here, we turned left to follow a track past the lodge for about 4km, crossed the Allt an Riabhach and headed across rough, boggy ground for about 1km to the head of Loch a’Garbh-bhaid Mor and continued on the right hand side of the loch for another few kms. This was very strength-sapping, and as the cloud was so low we did not see much.
