I put on plenty of suncream and set off along the track to the first munro of the day. I met a group from Surrey on the first summit, it was good that the weather was so nice given how far they had come – I thought I had a long journey to the hills!
I saw a common lizard as I was heading up to Creag a’mhaim but it ran off before I could get a picture. Also saw grouse and skylarks.
There were some nice scrambles along the way, I haven’t done much ridge walking until this week but really enjoyed it, especially since the weather was so good and there wasn’t much wind.
I think this is a really great route since the hills themselves are good to walk along and the views from the tops are also brilliant.
The walk back down off Creag nan Damh was probably the most tiring part of the day since it was sheltered and warm in the evening sun and the path is fairly rocky but it was nice walking back down beside the waterfall.
