Set off from Victoria Bridge with my pal on Sat. 8th to do this route weather not very good but as I keep saying if you only go on to the hill on fine days you wont be on many hills, anyway got to the top of the first one met a few people on the way up and just as we got to the top 2 guys looked like a father and son and 9 year old it was his first Munro so he was quite chuffed, set off in the mist and rain for the next one which was a wee bit different a bit of scrambling across the Aonach Eagach ???? anyway got to the summit quite cold and wet still we had a wee bothy tent with us, its great to get in out of the weather and have lunch, then we headed back down to the start as we got lower down the path became very wet under foot, and as happens half way down the mist cleared the rain stopped and we got the wet weather gear off and headed back to the car it took us exactly 8 hours to complete the route so we were quite pleased with that the route instructions were a help. As it wasnt a clear day the only photos were of the two of us on each summit which I will now try to add. Dont seem to be able to add photos but will try at some other time.
