Summit views
Meall Chuach summit
The walk in and Meall Chuaich
Anyone looking at the weather forecast  some days ago for this week may well have decided to go elsewhere for a walking holiday. Most reports were along the lines of 'changeable', 'unsettled', 'heavy downpours' or the like. Well so far Kath and Louis have had 4 beautiful days with sunshine most of the time, great views and a whopping 5 minute splash of rain! We set off today heading west for a clutch of 3 Munros near Loch Laggan. It was actually raining for the first time this week here so after a scone and jam in the car we turned round and headed over to Drumochter where they still had a solitary Munro left on the their tick list, Meall Chuaich. It was dry here and the tops clear, by the time we reached the summit the sun had come out and it was a beautiful afternoon stroll back down in warm sunshine and great panoramic views of The Dumochter hills and as far as Ben Alder.
