Carn Dearg, final Munro

Best view of the day 

Carn Sgulaird 

We could have done with this later on!

3 Munros in the bag

Lovely start 


Final climb

Dry and clear

Final descent
Andrew has now been out with me for 5 hill days over the last few years. Unfortunately weather hasn't always been on his side when he books a day out with me. Today was no different. He was hoping for some winter conditions but sadly were still in a warm period. Well warm and wet today. Andrew was up with his friend, Joe, who has never walked on the Scottish mountains. This morning we set off from an empty carpark at Glen Banchor to 'bag' the three Munros in the Monadhliath.  These are great hills for Navigation and Joe fancied learning some map and compass skills enroute around the Munro summits of A' Chailleach, Carn Sgulain and Carn Dearg. After about 30 minutes of walking a light rain fell and didn't stop all day bar a few brief moments. Views were limited but the craic was great and kept us all amazed on the long stretch of high ground between the second and third Munros. It's a long descent and walk from the final top of Carn Dearg . At least here we had some nice views before the bog fest on the way back to the car. The final hour was through paddy fields in the dark. A long, wet day but great fun and Joe says he'll be back after his initiation ceremony.
