The weather was really good with a slight breeze and some of the mountains in the distance were a bit hazy but the views were mostly fine.As we started going over the Horns we only seen one other person which turned out to be the only other person we would meet all day.
The last time I was on this mountain I had witnessed my only cloud inversion so it was good to see all of Beinn Alligin this time and some of the views do take your breath away.
mingmissus was moving well so we headed up for Sgurr Mhor but stopping for another couple of pics in between.
It took us just under an hour from the summit of Sgurr Mhor to Tom na Gruagaich with a few stops trying to take in so many great views of Beinn Eighe,Liathach and surrounding peaks. It was a fab day and with mingsmissus getting her 9th and 10th Munro along with great weather it really was worth the long drive to Torridon.

We were there, but couldn't see much from either munro.
Compare Eag Dubh, for instance...

Maybe so, but isn't it a great drive?! Either way there is really spectacular.
Torridon area is really some of the most spectacular parts of Scotland you'll see from a car.
