A few versions of the same scene. The main thing I remember from this walk, apart from the fine light on the way down, was my relative lack of fitness as I watched my companion dance their way effortlessly up the hill whilst I dragged my legs every step of the way. Anyway, I was glad to have finally climbed Sgulaird having thought of doing so ever since driving past in 1989 and being impressed by the reflection of the hill in Loch Creran. That would have been before the Creagan bridge took road traffic.
We followed the path by the River Ure on the ascent but then just cut directly north west on the descent.
