A pleasant circuit of Sgor an Lochain Uaine. We took the Larig Ghru to where the Allt a’Garbh Choire heads west to the bothy 1.5k west of the Bothy. Follow the stream up past the waterfall steeply up to Lochan Uaine (cp 7). From there up the Angel’s Ridge provides a fine line to to the Summit.
a gentle descent for approx 3k at first west then northerly leads to the Wells of Dee (cp 6) flowing crystal clear water. Head south down the gentle slope for another 3k down to the to the equally beautiful Loch nan Stuirtaig. (cp5)
From here traverse across to Allt clais an t-Sabhail and a gentle climb to the east soon to the north slopes of Cairn Toul and an easy contour up Devil’s Point (cp8). The path is reversed and continued down past the Bothy and back to the bikes, from where a broken chain led to a slow return.
26k and 1570m ascent.
