Coire Lair from the E top of Beinn Liath Mhor.
E side of Foinaven, from the Bealach na h-Imrich.9am, 09/06/89~ A blindside approach to Fionaven, from Strabeg. Off early up the delightful Srath Coille na Fearna in dewy sunshine, over the bealach and down to the ruins of Carrachandubh, with a steady pull up on to Ganu Mor by its eastern shoulder as the sun faded. The traverse to the Bealach Horn was mostly a pleasant stony ridge walk, with a scrambly descent to the Cadha na Beucaich and a long sodden trot down Plàt Rèidh. Camp by an Dubh-loch, with a fairly dismal circuit of Meall Horn the next morning, and back to Strabeg. The primæval Foinaven has character, in spadefuls, almost too much at times. The Earth had mountains before it had life, and these barren expanses of ridge and corrie seem to offer a glimpse into the most distant past.
