Up and down to Fear Breagach on the day after a huge storm had reconfigured the forest and scattered debris over anything resembling a path. The resulting track is very confused and shows a couple of dead ends - due mostly to my inept route finding - in fairness however, the storm had the place in tatters with most of the tracks blocked at some point.

The key to getting to the top lies in arriving at R7065920358 - from here a faint track leads into the forest - the wanderings indicated on my route are as a result of fallen trees.
