Evaluation: 1* walking (boring corrie for most of walk),
3* views (good of Loch Treig) – average overall.
Access: Park at Fersit before first houses.
Route: This can be done in either direction. For the descent from Chno Dearg, make directly for Lochan Coire an Lochain to avoid rocks & scree. Then follow double tracks in the grass when these are reached. This track is fast and joins the road through Fersit at the bridge just E of the barn. (For going in reverse, this track splits 200yds after leaving road.)
Weather 2/6/03: Dry day, just below cloud level, occasional sun, 5° at start at car; 11°C on return. Light but chilly breeze.
