The whole way up it looked like the fog was clearing but it didn’t until we’d made it to both summits. Loved the section between the 2 Munro’s, in the mist it was very dramatic. The image of a random guys map flapping around in the wind at the breezy summit of Ben vorlich will stay with me forever. His bagging buddy and said map wrestler did follow us as we headed for stuc a chroin but that was the last we saw of them unfortunately. Enjoyed my first bit of scrambling and we were grateful the mist cleared and our way home easy to follow. Boggy section on the way down was fun
