Set off this morning expecting pretty-awful weather. Apart from a couple of brief showers, it wasn't that bad at all.

Track all the way from start to summit. Not the most interesting hill but cracking views of the surrounding area. Maximum views for minimal effort. Definitely want to re-do in Winter!

I returned back to the car via the same route. I then drove to the Beinn Eighe car park for an ascent of Seana Mheallan.

Followed the track past the Ling Hut, and a few hundred metres further on before crossing the Allt Frianach. Couldn't find the bridge marked on the map – not sure if it is still there? No problem though as Allt Frianach was easy to cross.

Ascended easy, but very wet, grassy slopes up Seana Mheallan. Sgurr Dubh from slopes of Seana Mheallan:

On a clear sunny day, I think the views across to Liathach would be quite superb. Liathach from Seana Mheallan:

It didn't take that long to reach the first top. However, it took longer than expected to reach the second top and then the summit top.
