From Stuaic Bharr na h-Abhann IV 79631 85858 A (see for previous stage of walk) you have a short but steep drop over very loose rocky ground to a saddle before ascending over similar ground to the summit of Skregmore. Perhaps, it was tiredness on my part but I found the ground to be particularly treacherous over this stage, almost turning my ankle on two or three occasions. Skregmore IV 79211 86035 B has, like most of the other summits in this are a small stone cairn marking its top. The views from here are akin to those from ‘Stuaic’. The weather had cleared considerably by this stage allowing for clearer views to the WNW across Loch Acoose and Carragh Lake and beyond as well as to the Brandon Group of mountains across the Bay.
