Parked at Coulags and walked up past the bothy, where 4 people were just leaving, they headed up toward An Ruadh Stac, I continued up the track past Loch Coire Fionnaraich, and up to Beallach Ban. The wind became more apparent and showers started in from the west, but carried on round the track to the top of Coire Lair, where at a cairn, I turned right to follow a path up onto Sgorr Ruadh. The wind really started to pick up and care was needed on some of the narrower parts of the ridge, made it to the top dry, but didn't hang around but dropped to Loch A' Bhealaich Mhoir, where the wind had died but the rain had started. Angled down the slope toward the bridge across Fionn-abhainn, trying to keep on drier ground which was successful. Followed down the track to the car park and home.
