PAGE 1-B:  Scattered Wreckage found between Fafernie, Carn an t-Sagairt Beag, and Carn an t-Sagairt Mòr.

 

 

NOTE: The photos shown on these pages were taken in the direction of travel, beginning from Fafernie (1,000m) and extending further north to Carn an t-Sagairt Mòr (1,047m) and north-east to Carn an t-Sagairt Beag (1,044m). The photos therefore include much of the widely scattered wreckage as well as parts of the main wreckage (wing sections, etc.)

 

 


 

 

NOTE: The following pieces of wreckage were found on the bealach (i.e., pass) between Fafernie and Carn an t-Sagairt Mòr.
