We climbed Alligin and Liathach in good weather, but now it has turned to Scottish.

When we leave for Beinn Eighe the summits are already in the clouds.

W307 Spidean Coire nan Clach.jpg

After a steep climb we reach Spidean Coire nan Clach.

No time to enjoy the scenery, we continue on the ridge.

W311 Naar Ruadh-stac Mor.jpg

It needs some navigation in the mist to find the way to Ruadh-stac Mor.

W315 Triple Buttress.jpg

In the descend it starts raining. We have some view on the Triple Buttress, but meanwhile we are triple wet.

But the rain doesn't last forever and we can enjoy some views.


We even have some view on Loch Torridon in the distance.

And in sight of the finish we are nearly dry.

Welcome to WalkHighlands! Shame the weather was pants. The triple buttress/ triple wet picture had me chuckle though. :D
