Bored whilst on the last week of holiday from work and slightly unfit after slouching about over Christmas were the main motivators for adventuring out in a mild winter day to enjoy this remote munro...Forgot suncream.........
Arrived at 0930 to find a newly installed padlocked gate, brilliant !, cycle in distance was increased to 10km.
A wee stop at the refurbished bothy (great job done by the RAF lads) to put on full summer gear, then up Strath Mulzie to park the remains of the bike and ford the lovely warm stream.
Onwards and upwards into the clouds then over the 760m knoll and up into snow line before finding the summit close to the edge 1330.
Rapid descent required to avoid darkness, watching out for cornice edged cliff. Time for some random freefalling 360 degree forward tumbles and use of the rucksack as a brake...Some time later beneath the cloud and horizontal sleet the gradient levels out.
At 1430 managed to locate trusty rested bike, time for one last selection box crunchie. High on sugar picked up bike which seemed a lot lighter since shedding some parts on the inward leg. Headed downwind over the cobbled track with more pleasant whole body vibration to reach the wee bothy at 1530 and contemplate a sleep in comfort...
No brainer returned to car and homeward bound. Back home at 1730 for a heat and drip dry.. Nice one...sure beats health and safety work..which is due on Monday...plenty time for another wee dram!!

Good memories of Seana Bhraigh - approached from this side for my final Munro. We had great weather.
Where's that new gate? you used to be able to park very close to that bothy near Duag Bridge.

The gate was located at the final exit from the woods just about .5 km from bothy. No hassle just added about 30 minutes to bike section. Still better tackled from this side rather than Inverlael. Was up that side last year but did not have the time to go across to Seana Bhraigh.
Well done on completing the Munros..
