Jim, Jim Anne, Murray and I set off from the Toridon youth hostel.

Weather was not looking good all with drizzly rain on and off most of the morning.

Anne decided to turn back just as we were approaching the bealach which had taken us a very long time, think it had taken us 2 and half hours to just get to the end of the path before heading up to the bealach.

The 2nd munro was a little precarious with a bit more scrambling than i had expected , with poor visibility it was a slow day.

We decided to drop down ( as you can see from the map below) rather than going all the way back the way we had came.

I reckon this had shaved a good time off our descent and it was not treacherous at all, pretty safe way to come down actually.

However i was way of on the timings, the night before i had a rough calculation of 7 and a half hours but as you can see it took us 10hrs 25 mins .
