Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh

An early start for myself ,Ryan ,Ian and Jake on the go for 5 past 8 and the forecast for 70% cloud free tops did not look good .Got to the cairn at 744 metres in good time and decided to go for beinn dorain first .Visibility was poor on the way up and got to a cairn which we thought might be the summit(it was carn sasunnaich)when as if by a miracle the cloud lifted and we could see the ridge to the true summit.It was good and clear for the rest of the day and we headed back to the bealach and went for beinn an dothaidh.By this time the deep snow was starting to take its toll on our legs but the bold Ryan took the lead and inspired us to the top.Freezing wind up here but great views so took a few snaps and made our way back down .All in all another great day ,tough ,but the weather turned out good in the end and a couple of pints in the orchy hotel rounded of a good day :thumbup:

Don't you just hate it when you are absolutely knackered and the dog has enough energy left to go chasing snowballs/whatever?
Looks like a great day and some fine pics.

Certainly turned out better than it looked at the start. :D Nice views over Loch Tulla.
Good job you went on Saturday - I wasn't too far away from you on Sunday and couldn't see a thing :lol:

Aye it's Ian's dog and it must climb twice what we do at least .You've got to be careful though it will chase anything you throw and it nearly came a cropper when one of our group threw an apple core absent mindedly over a cliff on Ben Cruachan. :shock:
