walked Sgor Gaoith with my good neighbour and fellow walking partner Andy and was definetly taken aback with the fantastic views from the top, with huge vertical drops and shear cliffs this definetly has the wow factor
Sgor Gaoith is a little boggy at the bottom but soon drys up past the tree line, good man made path for 3/4's of the way up and is one of the easier shorter Munro's, for me 4 out of 5.
Even met the local wild reindeer bunch on the way back to the car.

We went over the ridge at the cairn at ate lunch out of the wind. As you note the views down to the Loch are truly breathtaking.... my photos and the recent piece on the Adventure Show fail to do it justice. I can also highly recommend mountain biking to the head of Loch Einich from Columbridge which I did last April with a small group of lads and dads.
must have missed that episode, damn, best programme on the telly...i've walked in to the loch from Whitewell and plan to cycle in with Valmer1965 to bag Cairn Toul, Angel's peak and Devils point without having to camp out over night at Corrour Bothy

My best visit was in March and after Sgor Gaoith and Sgoran Dubh Mor, we tobogganed on our bivvi bags a long way down the gully of the Allt a Chrom-Alltain, which was filled with deep snow - great fun.
