Done this last saturday This was meant to be the last of the Mamores but this was not to be . Started at the carpark at 0730 a nice summers day slight breeze no showers predicted . This walk as per walk highlands . Except getting lost in the woods again . Once out of the woods got hit with the first shower Mwis wrong and followed the track up to the lochan taking a few stops on the way .
Decided to take on Sgurr from the south a faint path to follow but you loose it in the rocks a couple of scrambles in the rocks much to the wee dogs dismay as she got hauled up by the scruff of her neck got to the clagged in top at 1000hrs Rain once more made our way to the route down to the beallach via some nifty foot work through the shale done more sliding than walking Once down jake had found a snow field snow balls at the end of june .
Stopped and had a brew when another cloud opened up and this one was heavy looking over to B. Beag Rain dreary looking dogs and being on my tod I decided to head back Beag can wait to another day Got back to the car just after 1330 hrs had a well earned bud then home I SHALL RETURN.
