Knoydart looks wonderful, as always; and Gairich looks most inviting. You don't say why you didn't go for it???

I'm quite surprised at the weather. Mountainlove was on Bla Bheinn not far away, and had great weather (see her report). We we were near Loch Lomond, and the cloud base was at about 500m, sadly.
