After yesterdays miserable, wet day today was a beautiful sunny and warm affair with excellent views. I took a trip round The Ring of Steal in the Mamores. This classic horseshoe circuit of several summits with four Munros gives a fine hillwalking day with the odd easy scrambling here and there. The Devils Ridge and An Garbhanach are the highlights of the walk with narrow ridges and wonderful views. There is a definite tint of Autumn on the hills now with the grass a beautiful golden colour in certain areas and crowberries, billberries in fruit. The descent down from An Garbhanach provides one of the most wonderful descent paths in the Highlands, a cracking stalkers path with beautiful views of Ben and Glen Nevis.
