A wee local circuit of the Sgorans tops from the allt ruadh parking in Glen Feshie. Rain was threatening when I started out along the track but when higher up the showers became more persistent than I expected. The forgetting to bring gloves and the non inclusion of my flask of tea prompted me to get more organised for the approaching cooler season ahead. :) Aslo a look at the improved paths .....I hadn't seen the Achlean to CBM path since the improvements last year and you don't see these surfaces when under the snow blanket. The two skeins of wild geese overhead, flying southwards in arrowhead formation when approaching .783, were a prompt towards seasonal change.

One of the improved tracks towards the west facing shallow coire of Sgor Gaoith...looking down from the early slopes of Geal Charn.

The spot height of .1053 between Sgoran Dubh Mor and Sgor Gaoith?

The rain was beginning to get to my lower layers when around the top of Gaoith.

Pleased to get lower down after a raw couple of Kls out to CBM and down to the lower ground. The improved path is very good down to the wee gap where I left the track to reach .783 and Carn Ban Beag.

Creag Mhigeachaidh and Geal Charn from the top area of CBB.

A descent from here to pick up the old stalking track to reach a trail on the west side of Creag Ghuithsachan and later rejoin the allt ruadh track to finish the walk.
