Tim looking very enthusiastic, yet sartorially challenged.

Looking SW from the spur of Beinn a'Chochuill. Although there is a track marked on the OS map, it's barely a sheep track and due to the heavy waterlogged topsoil - very difficult to see. It's not navigationally challenging though.

Still some snow leftover as we neared the summit.

The plateau at the top, and the final stretch to the summit is incredibly boring. Not made any better by the lack of a view :-(

There is quite an interesting scramble to the top of Beinn Eunaich.

Looks like you all enjoyed the trip once on the summit! :D Shame about the non-existent views.
