Left Lanarkshire early on Friday to tackle the Beinn Eighe two. Set off just after 10am bit later than I wanted but never mind 😊 I parked in the Coire Mhic Nobuil car park where the path out returns to.
The wind low was strong but I decided to head up and assess the weather up top. I decided to do this anti clockwise because I didn't fancy climbing up the scree chute after the Lochan and glad I did.
Once I got up to the ridge yeah the wind was strong but manageable just 😬 so set off to hit the 1st summit of the day Spidean Coire nan Clach. It was clear which was good if it had been raining I would have bailed.
Headed back along the ridge towards the second fighting with the wind which I won in the end :lol: :lol: :lol: again just :lol:
The second was in sight again assessed situation, by this point the wind was behind me. This would help me to get over to Ruadh-stac Mor, by this point the wind had picked up again and blew me over a few times.
With the second now reached it was time to retreat off the hills but 1st to tackle the wind back and then the scree climb down. Once I reached the scree I'm definitely glad I left this to last. I would have hated having to climb up through here.
Walking along past Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair was stunning with the stunning views of The triple Buttress Once past the loch the walk through the Glen was amazing with awesome view's of Liathach.
Challenging day but was worth it in the end :clap:
