I slept pretty well, surrounded by deer "belling". The last forecast I'd heard had suggested that there may be thunder today...not ideal for a day to be spent above 3000'. The cloudbase was round about 2500'...I was in a Quandry!
|Yours truly making his breakfast, debating if I should take my FWA...no point in climbing Munro's in the mist is there? I paced up and set off still undecided.
Why is a lot of my gear black, it looks rubbish in photo's!
|Here I'm looking down towards Mullardoch, the morning seemed to be improving.
|Looking back to the West the sky was breaking, decision made...a Munroing I would go. Shame I'd already dropped over 50m in height.
|Looking East showers were hanging from the sky, but the wind was so light they never really bothered me.
|As the shower passed the end of the ridge I'd just climbed the sun produced this weak rainbow.
|The Munro summit of Mullach Dheiragain, with the ridge i would cross later in the day. the cloud was coming and going across the ridge I was to follow. My direction now SW!
|The Carn Eige group of hills, I was now very glad I'd decided to go high.
|Another shower, another rainbow. Most of the rain was passing to the North of me though.
|Soon enough the summit of Sgurr nan Ceathreamhan arrived. wonderful views to the South of the Glen Sheil hills and beyond.
|I turned to look back along the ridge I'd walked as it stretched back towards Mullardoch.
I met John Graves on the summit, (a fellow Backpackers club member) we were both going the same way and so we walked together for the rest of the day.
|This is the route onwards over the last munro for the day An Socach. A couple of daywalkers were just arriving as we left, they had stayed at Alltbeithe.
