BELOW (Yellow dashed line): Indicates a very well constructed footpath from this point up the side of An Lurg and then bearing right and on to Bynack More.

 

NOTE: The footpath sweeps out of sight around the hill shoulder on the left. Further on, however, it rejoins the yellow track seen in the centre of this photo.

BELOW (Blue line): Location of wreckage. (Photo taken before the end of the Land Rover track.)

 

NOTE: The wreckage lies on moorland on the far side of, and to the left of An Lurg, in this photo. This involves a diversion to the left on the upper slopes from the path shown in yellow. (The path marked in yellow leads to An Lurg and Bynack More.) The diversion toward the crash site continues for about a mile across heather, deep peat hags and gullies.
