Change of plan - original target of Carn na Saobhaidhe switched to BLMaGLi as Tony had no car.
Picked him up at Contin and headed for what I thought was going to be a really boggy ascent, as every report I'd read repeatedly noted the boggieness of this hill.

Nonetheless the views were great over to An Teallach until it's tops were shrouded in clag too.

We ate our pieces and then dribbled down to the bealach between BLMaGL and Meall Daimh.

The going was still quite good, so we then headed down the side of the plantation to the road and back to the car. An altogether pleasant and not very boggy walk. I guess we were lucky - not a very common occurrence !
