Quick Saturday sprint up these 2 munros, was very wet, boggy, but love the area so was happy to go back up again. Cracking views over to the Lawers 5...once the clagg cleared a bit! Only took 3 hours but wasn't hanging about too long as bit windy, cold and wet....Hollywood midge swarm attack back at the car, never seen anything like it! Even the skin so soft would have struggled against these bad boys!

It's a bit rough getting windy, wet cold and midges! :( But some days are like that! It was cloudy and windy when I tackled these two - but the clag cleared just as we summitted Meall Corranaich (which we did second) giving us great views of the Lawers range. It looks like you saw some of those views too. Enjoyed seeing it again! 8)
