Done these 2 Munro's today like WH reports say follow fence posts to Meall Corranaich summit. Really simple(whoever built this fence is a cowboy full of gaps :lol: ) The walk to 2nd summit again would be simple in clear weather but we were walking in clouds with no visibility at all. This was my 22nd Munro and the first time i had to use compass for direction. Head in a NE direction. The walk to 2nd summit from bealach takes about 25 minutes on easy path. 2nd summit of day 2 hours 50 minutes. But this is were the fun begins it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach car. It is bog everywhere it was terrible the whole place is like a swimming pool the rain was pelting down really soul destroying. If your doing this walk take a wetsuit or wait for the next 6 month heatwave to dry the place up. PS The photo below is not summit cairn on Meall Corranaich it is a 2 minute walk past this on left just encase you are only taking in 1 Munro. Stay safe guys and girls.
