The following photos really don't tell the story, It was very windy today, the wind got up between Sgurr na Ciste Dubh and Sgurr na Carnach that had me pretty spooked for a bit. Given this I decided that I would look to get off of the hill as early as I could - unfortunately I still had two particularly breezy tops to get over. :roll:

As I didn't have a walking buddy and I was staying at the Kintail Lodge I decided I should get a taxi along to the start. The hotel sorted me out with the local taxi company (it was £13 for the journey).

Apart from the wind looks like you got a good day for it. :D

Yes, it could have been a lot worse and I do have some great photos of the walk. I think if I do it again I will be a lot more confident as there is a few bits where you think its going to be really treacherous (that drop off between Spainteach and Ciste Dubh is a particularly heart stopping moment) but when you get there and take your time its not too bad.

Clear skies on a classic ridgewalk, pity about the wind, but hey that's another three blue balloons added to your list :clap: :D
