Laurence and I were in Glencoe today and went scrambling on The Buchailles,Stob Dearg. Laurence wanted to get some basic rope skills out of the day as well as some terrific scenery of course. We went onto Great Gully Buttress and found solitude all day combined with good scrambling. What a contrast from yesterdays madding crowds on The Ben. It was another beautiful day, especially in the afternoon with constant sunshine and warmer than yesterday. The path down into Coire an Tullaich is now free of any snow. Looks like wet tomorrow but improving by the weekend.
