Day two of the Kintail weekend. Better start today tents away and in the Clunie for breakfast by 8am. :-o

9.30 and we're away, some cloud in the sky and a little breeze but otherwise great conditions. The path is good and not as steep as the saddle yesterday evening and we're soon on top of Carn Ghlusaid. Numero 40 for me. Nice views to Fort William too. 8)

Sgurr nan Conbhairean next and again we make quick time.

From here looks like Sail Chaorainn may be a bit more work as we drop down to the ridge. Turns out to be a Glenshee style jaunt though so not too bad.

The summit isn't amazingly distinct but the views are great, we soak them up for a bit and then head off. Back up the shoulder and we're making cracking time.

Fairly steep descent but not too boggy and soon we're back at the car. Cracking weekend!
