This was a Scottish Midweek Mountaineering Club meet, parked at the end of Loch Arkaig at the car park and walked along past the old barracks and along the track toward Glendessary Lodge. After crossing the bridge on Dearg Allt, followed up a new ATV track to an old fence line at about 400m, and from there followed the steep south rifde all the way to the summit. Cloud was blowing around and as I headed off to visit the north summit, experienced a Brokken Spectre then a cloud bow. It seemed the only practical way back down was to retrace my steps, but once back to the fenceline, took a more direct line back to the bridge then to the car.
