I'm heading up to Meanach in July to support someone doing a Ramsay Round. I'll need to be in place at a specified time so want to make sure I'm there in time. but also want to have a miniadventure on the way there...
So a number of questions to seek some local knowledge. Does anyone have a current conditions report?
I realise the most direct route is up past mamore lodge and past the loch elides, but wondered how much longer (in time) it would be to go via Blackwater and Ciaran
How is the track past Ciaran? Still cut up?
If going up the landy track to Blackwater is the dam passable, some photos seem to show gates?
If heading west from Loch trieg to meanach which is the least worst side of the Abhaihn Rath; North or South? I've been there on foot before but come down from the grey corries. I seem to remember the valley is, erm, a little rough under foot in places!
