Today, weather was perfect - warm and dry with a chilly breeze. Followed the standard route up Twistin hill to reach An Casteil in 2hr 30min. Descended the first step to Bealach Buidhe and then peeled right down grassy slopes to the depressingly low col (615m) below Ben Chabair. Nothing for it but a steep but easy grind following some diagonal ramps R to relieve the boredom. Reached in top in 4hr 40min and descended back to the col.
A long boggy walk back now, and I slowed down significantly . I crossed the fence by a gap by the allt Andoran and headed down thatr stream to join the W Highland Way. Crossed the Falloch without difficulty and followed track and road back to my car. Ben Chabair definitely not my favourite, but only 5 to go now!
