What is there to say about Beinn a'Chrulaiste when the cloud is down and the wind is up. Well nothing really - other than that the dugs enjoyed it and the deer are friendly.

A decent short walk for foul weather days,

Similar day to what i got on this one, a shame as the views are apparantly superb from the summit. Some nice photos of the deer and the dugs :D

I recognise those two dogs as I spoke (or shouted in the wind) to you at the trig point. I was the guy who had come straight up the steep bit :lol:

Cracking photos of your four legged friends :clap:

Yeah we did this hill when we needed a safer option than Bidean. We had to trawl through heavy snow but the views were excellent from the top. :D

Really good walk this and the views are tremendous. Of note is watching the WHW crowd aspiring to the terror of & prospect of the 900ft climb up the Devil's staircase. Aren't the deer at the Kingshouse well friendly :clap:

Good to see the dogs enjoyed it - pity about the clag though. Have often thought about this on passing through Glencoe - maybe next year - cheers :)
