The weather was okay yesterday when we arrived in Glen Etive, we had Meall nan Eun and Stob Choir an Albannaich to do to complete the Glen Etive range, there was some cloud but the summits were visible for most of the walk, we chose to go to the right and do Stob Choir an Albannaich first. The boggy area following the river up the hill was dire it was a day when wellies would have been better than boots, at some points the ground was so soft with the amount of water on it we were stepping into grass and the water was coming over the top of our boots so within a couple of hundred yards my feet were soaking with at least 5 hours to go. All the way up we had the hill to ourselves and when we reached the summit we sat taking in the views from Stob Choir an Albannaich with the cloud in the area adding some atmosphere to the surrounding hills. When we reached the summit of Meall nan Eun again we got some decent views but there was a cold wind so we didn't hang around too long. The way back down was pretty much as it had been going up, boggy and soaking wet feet.
