Mixed weather, cath and I went up A'Chailleach first - not much to this hill at all very easy ascent but noone around and great isolation. Carn Sgulain was a bit underwhelming but when you get over to Carn Dearg the view is great. From the Summit of CD there is a nice view of the corries and valleys below and there was still some snow left too in one or two corries.
Not sure why the guide book seemed intent on taking us back on ourselves, the walk onward from CD to Carn Macoul was the best way i think as it gave more great views.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
