Uill bha mi a mach a ribhist an duigh ................ for another quickie my choice being Beinn Sgulaird faisg Loch Creran :D

The forecast on Di -Sathairne was cáic with gales and blizzards so that"forced" me back onto the Shinty pitch for a pre season friendly to "warm" up for the season

it was no very warm i can tell you :lol: .... but enough of real mens games :lol:

Headed off at 7.30am and was at Loch Creran for 9.00 am ,bha an t side ? ...breagha is fuar ach tioram :lol:

The route up was steep with powdery snow over ice although this was here and there so no need for crampoons :)
Its a long haul with a good few false summits but the weather was grand and with "An Cu" leading the way we sound found ourselves on the druim

Me and ma wee pal joe followed the ridge up till we could hear the roar of the wild atlantic
But once the straits narrowed we got to the best bit of all and made a gallant bid for the top

Me oh my it almost made us cry As the ble blue sea out to the west was the best sight I've ever seen

5 hours on ice .....you must have been moving

Another cracker of a report :thumbup:

Glad to see your dog having such a great time and leading the way so well :D :D

Fantastic photos, glad you managed to escape the worst of the weather heading in from the west, it was looking a bit dark over there :( :(


Looking forward to meeting you at Kintail, maybe you could help me on my way with a few Gaelic phrases :D :D
