The bogs on the approch are very wet, the path entering a 80 meter long shallow lake at one stage, took about an hour and quarter to the first little summit, (enough for one day normally). Here realised that the the three hills get progressivly higher, the bealachs progressivly lower and the slopes progressivly steeper.
A long day but fab weather and views.

I always thought that mountain looked a nasty ascent/descent... your pictures prove it! It looks truly evil...
