At the start of Sgor Gaoith there was a really good path and already the view was amazing if you look backwards.
We kept following the path and we got to a cairn and that was when the path stopped and we had to find it again.

We finely got into the snow and I was wondering if the top was near but I didn't want to know because i wanted to be surprised by the cliffs.

You couldn't see how far down they were but my dad says they're massive.

I finely got to the top in a short time and on the way down we just went down beside the burn and we got back on the path, got back to the car and went home.
