Did that route today, weather cleared up about 8am after last night thunder storm so I hit the trail at 8.30 I followed burn up to bottom of an stuc with not bad visibility of about 500 meters this changed when I was halfway up the ascent.
Visibility dropped to about 20 meters and wide and rain started and to top it off ruck sack cover would not stay on.
Eventually got to the top and was greeted by sideways rain and Gale force winds not good for a beginner, walk to an stuc was not too bad where I met a fellow walker doing route in other direction.
Scramble down that gully was out of my comfort zone in that weather, I did stop and go back up to check gps tracker.
After that thunder and lightning started so I upped my pace and finished off the other 2 munros.
6 1/2 hours only stopping to take pics of summits.
