Dirc Bheag
Dirc Bheag
Looking SW from just below the col. The adjacent Dirc Mhor has been described as "floored with a jungle of boulders and an abundance of ferns making the holes between the boulders difficult to see"(Scottish Mountaineering Club District Guidebook). The description fits the Dirc Bheag too, and indicates that the place is a walker's nightmare. It is instructive to think that the reason why the vegetation is ungrazed is that the deer choose not to come here.
