The day started with a taxi ride to the start from the youth hostel and the weather was set fair. The assent to the top of am bodach is a steep walk but the ever increasing views take your mind off the plod up

When you reach the top the ridge can be seen up to the summit of meall dearg and just starts the blood running a little faster
