Drove up friday after work tent pitched and met the gang in the hotel at 10pm a few beers head down 2359hrs after our last escapades this is subdued. lessons learned . Saturday set off for Morvich for the first hills weather clear parked at the outward bound centre then off Me Kev Pigeon Gav chris and the jake a good stalkers path up the glen to the bealach where the path splits Beinn Frada first continued up the path to the corrie up over the lip then with Gavs ingenious map reading got to the cairn good views all round Stayed for the photo shoot and a brew then back down to the junction in the path . Kev called it a day then the 4 of us headed up to the top of the glen turned left then headed up AGhlas Bheinn then the rain started clag down waterproofs on views nil over multitudes of false tops ( why cannt the hills go up then down ) how I hate false tops still following a decent path got to the cairn no point in hanging about back down . Then it cleared up a dry walk down off the hill dried out waterproofs off onto the track then back then wet again just before I reached the car a good walk in good scottish summer weather
