Windy, rainy day and one that with hindsight should have waited till the afternoon rather than the morning. Done as per SMC Grahams and Donalds book p. 70. One of those days when taking the map out to check it resulted in a soggy mess going back in. Legs still feeling it after the Assynt holiday but glad to have knocked this one off nonetheless.
