MONADH LIATH MUNROS
At last the sun shone for Kath & Louis on their final day of Munro bagging this week. Today we were joined by Will. After yesterdays big day on Braeriach-Cairn Toul we opted for a shorter eight and a half hour day on the Monahliath. The group of three Munros Carn Dearg, An Sgulaid & A' Chailliach are linked together by some high, undulating plateau, mostly grassy and some boggy sections but with the dry weather we have enjoyed of late it gave fine walking. It was cloudy this morning and some drizzle by mid day but in the afternoon we basked in warm sunshine and some fab views on A' Chailliach. Well done to Kath & Louis for some great company and strong hillwalking, big days on the big mountains of The Cairngorms. Kath as now bumped up her Munro tally to 126 with Louis and Will not too far behind!
