Just catching up on a recent trip to Drummochter back in November. The weather was not what was forecast so not much in the way of views but it's a cracking pair to do in the snow, wouldn't have liked doing them so much in the Summer I don't think. Here's some pics of our day :thumbup:

Good choice doing them in snow. I attempted them in snow a few years ago but had to give up as visibility was so poor, i returned to do them in the summer but not as enjoyable :wink:

Hi,

Was up on Carn na Caim today (Friday 21st), no point in any photos, visibility down to from 0 to 20 m, howling gales, snowing. Great walk if you are training for a South Pole trek!!
