Glad it cleared up for you, Colla - now I see the impressive views I missed :roll:
Regret to say that I didn't understand most of your narrative and Google translation didn't really help though I would agree with your English translated sentiments near the end :thumbup: - cheers :)

Glé mhath gu dearbh. Bha mise air Garbh-bheinn agus Belig anns a cheò an dé cuideachd.

Did you meet two guys from Orkney? I overtook them going up by Allt na Dunaiche on my way to Coire a’ Càise. Report to follow!

So happy you got the views - no place on earth like it IMHO. Great report and photos. Wish I could write Gaelic as well as you!

Great report and pictures - thanks for posting, now I can see what I missed last year when I climbed Bla Bheinn in the rain and low cloud. Will have to go back. :?

Wonderful, i really enjoyed that. Am i right in thinking you are a former Highlander by your location, apologies my Gaelic is almost non existant, well apart from what i've picked up watching the football on BBC Alba!!

Some great views from my favorite mountain, we climbed Marsco on the same day but were well on our way down by the time it cleared up. Wish I could understand a bit more Galic :lol:
