...... Saturday up early and away on the 6.20am ferry in Glen Carron for 8.20 , no tourists doing 30mph in the 60 zone to choke our route so a pleasure drive until the Kintail road through Glen Sheil which has a hellish surface for about 8 miles ,huge hole in it . Our target was Mor Uisge the big wet one and the adjacent Corbett and to take us into the 30's , Munro's left and 30 Corbett's completed ! .
Set off to promising conditions
A wet enough route low down but I have seen and been in worse a fair pull up the steep sides to the summit Cárn right enough but very straightforward and found ourselves on the summit after 1hr 20mins
Sgionneil agus seallaidh gu Torbheartan alainn gu dearbh ..... grand with good views to Torridon
We spent a while waiting for the ceo partially surrounding Maoil Luainne and partners to clear , but clear it did and three I have still to do yet before setting off to the far end of the plateau .
Scenery opening up toward Maoile Lunnaidh and sisters
Not to bad a drop and a fine scalloped Coire with decent underfoot conditions , I have had enough of the snow for this year !
We soon hit the wee Cárn at the far end and stopped there for an hour's lunch total time 3 hrs to here ,no bad going and an cu as always first to lift his leg at the summit
Carried full Winter kit but never used it ,still a fair amount of snow in East /North aspects but perhaps that is the last of it for this year .A grand wee circuit which appears to be often given poor press , we really enjoyed the morning easy going and great scenery ,looking ahead now to Maol Lunnaidh and her sisters which look like a great days walking.

I still have to go back for the corbet before June.. I know it's demoted, but was a munro when I started my round, so somehow wouldn't feel compleat without it.
From the back there are interesting looking stalkers paths I wouldnie mind exploring...
