I reckoned the best weather for bank holiday Saturday would be Glen Coe. The Aonach Eagach tops were my two remaining Munros in that area so my mind was made up regarding choice of route.
Weather: dry but cloudy to start, clearing to sunny skies in afternoon .
Anyway, this was a really enjoyable route in great conditions. The scrambling was fun but not too taxing and I made a point of not skipping any of the tricky bits. After reaching Sgorr nam Fiannaidh I decided to add on the Pap of Glencoe to extend the shortish day a bit.
Also, many thanks to the hen party who gave me a lift back up the road from the Clachaig (how they did the ridge in dresses, I do not know ?).
Anyway, here's a few photies...
