Let car at 9:00 and continued up Coire Dubh Mor and round to Coire Mhic Fhearchair (a magical place). Climbed up scree to col and on to Ruadh Stac Mor, then the thunder began. Decended back to col and on around ridge with the thunder and lightening continuing all around (an intense but exillirating experience).
Reach the trig point and then summit proper of Spidean Coire nan Clach. Returned to trig and prepared to descend south down to the stalkers path with the rain now heavy and constant and more lightening. Soon reached the road and the trek back to the car. Arrived wet but happy at 3:00pm.
