Me Steve and the dug Booted and suited at the ski centre at 0800 Mwis nearly correct 70% clear hills no chance as it turned out all day clag clag and mair clag . This walk was done by the book kept to the right of the tows followed the faint path got to the cairn on Meall a Bhuiridh just after 10am , as well as the clag Drizzle . I dont know what other walkers think but I would prefer it to rain than the drizzle. While we were on the top it was jackets .
A quick look at the map then on our way to Creise down to the 800m at the beallach then up to the cairn got there in just under 1hr 20 min no point in hanging about clag rain and a wee breeze no views . All to be done now was to retrace our steps back to the ski centre . Passed about 40 walkers I(mainly from the emerald isle) heading up to Bhuiridh for a completion plenty heavy packs and clanking of bottles passed the time of day with a few groups once below the clag it turned out to be a good day then the curse of the midge Back at the car park there was a slight breeze which kept the curse at bay while wehad a few of Buds finest chilled amber necter heaven BLISS a good day out

Indeed a shame about the weather.
We were up Beinn Mhic Chasgaig, and crossed over to Creise yesterday in finer conditions. I thought, when I saw the report, that it may have been you I captured in a zoom shot on the MaB summit from top of Stob a' Ghlais Choire
