Interesting route there Amelia - how was the SE ridge on/off Tom na Grugaich? The more usual route is up/down the Coir nan Laogh gully. Which was round did you go - Horns first or last?

Climbed up the SE ridge - there was a queue in the gully and the ridge seemed to complete the round. Rewarded by stunning views on either side (sure we saw the Nevis range in distance?) Not been to Torridon before we had intended to climb but fantastic weather dictated we walk and explore as much of the area as possible.
