After a 95 miles drive I was at the car park at edge of woods and setting off for the 3 munros at 900. Route has been well covered and the paths are easy to follow so no need to mention any of this in detail. Just a case of one foot in front of the other and get up onto the summit ridge.
A steep pull and the summit cairns and trig point of Carn Liath was reached at 1015. Nice views and at last no heavy snow coverage.
The descent of CL and the rise up to BCCB was gentle with a nice cairn at the summit. Great panoramic views.
A short descent led to the col. A brief chat with three other fit elderly walkers and a dog en route then two wee birds blocked the route.
Then it was up over a wee bit of thawing snow onto the main ridge leading up to the tri top. Three fine cairns and one trig point, with the last one being the summit.
Sitting on the summit a content thought passed confirming that the 200 barrier had now gone there were still some real easy ones to pick off in batches. Still it is golf season and the sun must be due to show soon. Decisions!!
I descended via the top of Airigoid Bheinn 1061 following the ridge until the snow ended then picked a route over heather and stones down north side to reach lower ground. I joined the main path at the river and trudged out.
I returned to the car at 1510 safe and sound just as the rain came on.
