Weather forecast was better for the Sunday this weekend, so we made this a shorter walk to get the Top we were after - just 6 left now :D We'd only done this Munro as part of the Creag Meagaidh 5 before, so this was our first time up the shoulder that goes over the South Top.

Where the track goes left, we decided to cut a corner and take a line up through the felled area
Looking back - it might have been easier to stay on that track after all :D
View to the south west as we climbed
Past the snow line, but didn't need the micro spikes we'd carried with us
Approaching the South Top
Too close to miss out the Munro - heading over there next
Beinn a' Chaorainn summit - no views from here for us today
Almost a viewpoint on the way back
Missed this path on the way up so we climbed the fence further up the hill - turns out there's a big gap in it :D
Our stats for today; not much in it but recording the average
