Munros 142 and 143. A chilly cold day as we set off from Glen Banchor, but bright enough. The track soon became boggy, but once we carefully crossed the burn and up the slopes past the wee bothy was a straightforward and quick walk up A'Chaileach. The rain came in though and with a strong wind it wasn't fun! As the second munro wasn't far, we didn't stop, and kept going across the boggy ground to reach Carn Sgulain, then onwards to find a spot out of the wind. The rain had stopped and we we're drying out. Fortunately the sun came out while we ate our lunch. We continued on the same direction to descend alongside the burn, the stags roaring in the distance. We didn't see any, but there were a few mountain hares. Again the ground was boggy and pathkess for a while until we thankfully reached a (boggy) path which met our upward route.
