Today we were climbing the horns last in the standard mannor this walk is completed. We set on the fantastic stalkers path in beautiful sunshine and warm weather we were soon down to t-shirts......not bad for mid november.
A nice sharp ascent up into Coire an Laogh we were soon to reach Tom na Gruagaich with great 360 views. Visible was the western isle's, The cuillin, Torridon and The Fisherfield forrest for starters plus many more. Not forgetting the horns themselves which looked fantastic.
A lovely walk along the ridge then continued around towards the second Munro of Sgurr Mor.
Great views of the Horns, they looked very dramatic and intimidating, we barley stopped as our excitment was starting to build, well mine was, I think Raymond was left thinking we should turn around
We got to the start of the horns , smiles all around, they were no where near as difficult as there reputation susgests.
With the horns dispatched a very steep descent was started back down to the glen floor. We even saw a Golden Eagle soaring before settling on some steep cliffs.
With the sun starting to set, the hills were turned a fantastic glowing orange colour as we set off on the walk back down the glen and to the car.
A fantastic day with great weather. A hill i'll certainly return too.

Seems an eternity since I was up in Torridon last summer.
Did you do this in mid-November, or September as the "Date Walked" suggests?
