It was another sunny day in the west Highlands today, cooler than of late which was very pleasent for walking and no midges (yet)! I had a wander round The Ring Of Steall, the classic horseshoe ridge in The Mamores, encompassing Sgurr a' Mhaim, The Devils Ridge, Sgurr an Iubhair, Am Bodach and An Garbhanach. Great ridge walking day out with two bits either end with  narrow sections to spice the day up a bit. There used to be five Munros on this section of The Mamores but the powers that be decided to delete Sgurr an Iubhair. A few folk out along the route today, interesting to see most doing it the opposite way round, starting on An Garbhanach. I always think it's easier starting with Sgurr a' Mhaim first, for less steep bits on descent and  better views, I also start up the NW ridge of Sgurr a' Mhaim from the lower falls carpark, short road walk downhill from Steal at the end of the day-not battling through trees on steep ground like countless folk have no doubt encountered over the years!
