We cycled in from Loch Affric as far as Alltbeithe Hostel where we left the bike before taking the path behind the hostel. The path takes you to the col between the two Munros. Cloud was low today so no views higher up and there was a constant drizzle from the cloud so conditions were slippy at times. From the col we went to An Socach first then over to Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan for Jimmy and Mo's benefit as i had previously done this from the Shiel Bridge side. I was hoping it would clear for us as last time i got no summit view and this time i saw the exact same view. We then returned to the col and the path back down to the hostel before cycling back out to Loch Affric.
