Corrag Buidhe cloud formation
Stuart getting stuck into the scrambling
Lots of this
Loch na Sealga
Scrambling galore
Deserted Corrag Buidhe pinnacles
Good here
Nearly there
Toll an Lochain and Lord Barkeley's Seat
Sgurr Fiona from Lord Berkeley's Seat

The heat continued again, a very humid and still traverse of An Teallach. Stuart booked one day for the traverse including the Corrag Buidhe pinnacles, the classic route. With just 50 Munros for him to complete the round, these two on An Teallach ranked high on his favourite 3000ft mountains. The weather forecast leading up to today was constantly changing and being updated. The thunderstorms that have been drifting around most of the UK didn't reach the finest mountain on Earth. We had a completely dry and bright day. Very sticky and warm with a few midgies on the summits. We saw no one all the way from Corrie Hallie up to the summit of Sgurr Fiona. The Corrag Buidhe to ourselves! There were the An Teallach goats all over the mountain, were they following us? Views weren't extensive and the skis very hazy, even in the few brakes we had. The scrambling fun more than makes up for the lack of clear views. Stuart had already made a traverse of the Skye Cuillin and the Aonach Eagach so we moved quickly and were down at Dundonnell  in good time.
