Nursing a couple of minor injuries at present, so just a short walk undertaken today.
I opted to start this walk from the track beyond Bohenie, to the East of Glen Roy.
I drove along an unsurfaced track in Gleann Dhoire, as far as a small quarry.
The track is fine for a 4x4 and most cars but wouldn't recommend taking a car with sports suspension along it
Parking at small quarry in Gleann Dhoire:
From the quarry it was just a case of head up the hill - no path, just wet grass and heather.

Looking across to Leanna Mhor (East):
There is one three-foot fence to cross (not barbed).

It was a bit sad to see most of the summer flowers past their best: Bog Asphodel, Devil's Bit Scabious, etc. The good thing about Autumn though is the abundance of fungi.

Ascending Creag Dhubh:
Views were very limited as there was cloud above 450m today. I did catch a fleeting glimpse of a view towards Tulloch.

After visiting the cairn and the trig point, I returned back to the car via roughly the same route.
I don't agree with the DoBH that the trig point is the summit. The base of the
cairn is definitely higher.

During the descent the views improved somewhat. It didn't last long though before the rain started again.
