Thursday - Creag Mhor lies on the Southside of a wooded Loch Voil at Baquhidder - the area for my last trip. This Graham is better accessed from Glen Buckie - I park at Ballimore farm gear up and follow the G+D route to the top. With a general cloudbase about 450m there will be little to see today unless the sun again burns it away. The way is wet grass with odd crags as I gain height in mist. Map check shows a dogleg to reach the top so pacing and altimeter get me to the pile of stones that lie on a separate wee ridge overlooking Glean Dubh. Touch the cairn and down S/E into daylight and a track leading into the deer reserve (no deer) then the car.. Boot are soaking. Only sigh of life- farmer on quad bike sheep and birds
