Dùn Caan
Dłn Caan
I should have taken this view on the way up, before the breeze began to ruffle the surface of the lochan. What you don't see in this view is that just on the far side of the lochan there is a cliff that drops steeply down to Bealach Ruadh, and to get to Dłn Caan you have to scramble down the cliff and climb all the way back up again on the other side of the chasm.
