Looking back along the ridge to The Big Gun and Cruach Mhor with its Grotto. Pat is on the path which is fairly well defined along the top of the ridge - after this one he's is threatening to take up golf.
The path keeps generally to the south side of the ridge which is steep rather than the sheer drop down to Loch Coimin Paist that greets you on the north side of the ridge. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/10/comment/1146/
