Driving down Glen Briitle this morning with dry conditions, The Cuillin tops clear and lighter winds than forecast gave Ali and I some hope of another day for a Cuillin summit. We headed up to Sgurr na Banachdich which is one of the most straight forward Munros on the ridge and just a walk in summer conditions. We again enjoyed excellent snow cover and it has firmed up from yesterday with some hard frozen stretches in places. It was only around a 40mph wind on the final summit ridge. We saw no one all day and enjoyed a dry day on the whole with just the odd snow shower. Just goes to show that despite a dire forecast a couple of days ago we still had a great two days and two new Munros for Ali. That plus snow on The Cuillin, fab.
