Started from car park by myself on a lovely warm sunny morning (8:30) and contnued up to coire nan laogh and the summit of Tom na gruagaich. From the summit I saw what was to follow and it looked amazing. The descent from Tom required some care but the climb to Sgurr mor was straight forward. The horns did not loo as imposing as I first imagined so I proceeded with renewed vigour. The scrambling route over the first two was obvious and provided little difficulty but bags of fun. At the third, the obvious route appeared to contour round, so as the wife and weans were waiting at base and time was of the essence, I followed the obvious route and descended down to the lovely Coire Mhic Nobuil and back to the car arriving (13:45)
