Arrived with Jeff and Steve at about 11.30 having left Newcastle at 6am. Weather a bit changeable, but promising. Headed off through Nature reserve and up path to bealach, missing the right turn p BG. This was fine though and walked round back til BL came into view. Up BL, v windy on top and snow in air (painful on face /eyes). Descended BL and Jeff decided to rtn via outward route. Steve and I went up BG (not difficult / steep / far) then descended fairly steeply down ridge. Saw Jeff walking below and met him where paths converged, returning to cars together then off for a pint in Bridge of Lochay.
