Left the car park at 10:30am and decided to do the horseshoe clockwise, leaving the horns till last. The forecast was meant to be poor but we were very lucky and had a reasonably clear day with only a couple of spots of rain.
Very straightforward route this. We followed the path up to the summit of Tom na Gruagaich and stopped for our piece.
Views were pretty good over towards Sgurr Mhor and the horns.
Following the obvious path (a little care is required descending from the first top) it was a nice pleasant walk to Sgurr Mhor. We were at the summit just under 3 hours after leaving the carpark.
Continued over the horns and descended down via the path back to the car park.
Into the Ledgowan Hotel for a pint (and to book the bunkhouse for October where we will have a nice long day back in Achnasheen)

If you know Danny, you'll probably recognise John C from the trip as well.....Danny still likes his more 'vertical' methods up getting up the hills but occasionally comes out with our wee group.
