Headed out despite forecast saying cloudy tops, maybe lifting in afternoon, intending to do both hills as normal. 'Chaffy' was doing route for first time and looking forward to rewarding views.Cloud level never lifted above bealach and plenty of snow on top of hill with visibility of about 20 feet. Followed path to top passing large cairn of false top,useful reference for return we said,but completely missed it on way back to bealach. Stopped for some food and decided just to head back to car instead of second hill as cloud was never going to lift. :(
