Weather forecast promissing for the day, after some clouds early morning, then suppose to be clear sky and good visibility...watching the clouds mooving over and then away finally, I started my walk in hope to see all the great mountains around from top of Beinn a'Bheithir...

Love the path via Forest...and the sky looks clear...promissing
:clap: 8) :D

I left the path and started climb this steepy slope straight up as shortcut
:roll: :D

Almost on top of Sgorr Dhearg - looking at Sgorr Dhonuill opposite

I walked a little down on the ridge to get better view of the summit from this angle

Another view from the summit, but confused about the visibility...sunny clear sky and Loch Leven with Pap of Glencoe is almost invisible...the view suppose to be !!!
:? :( :roll:

The view is clear for short distance only...Descending Sgorr Dhearg towards ascent of Sgorr Dhonuill

Looking at the valley, there is the start point - behind the Forest at South Ballachulish

In the middle between Sgorr Dhearg and Sgorr Dhonuil, looking back at Sgorr Dhearg...there is the usual path on the left over the edge, I will use the way for descending back to the car park after Sgorr Dhonuil

Looking back once again...everything looks so clear, but why not views to the distance...( Glencoe, Mamores and Ben Nevis...I missed the view

Ah, the vagaries of the weather up here - clag one minute, haze the next :roll:
It's a nice walk and looks like it cleared quite a bit of the time :thumbup:
Can remember my camera failed early on on this walk possibly due to the cold affecting the batteries and/or condensation inside it - had to resort to using a rather basic camera on my phone :( - cheers :)
