After an absence of four weeks I was back in the Highlands at the end of April. This time my youngest daughter who was also ready for adventure accompanied me on this trip. On the first day of our stay in Cluanie we'd planned to explore part of the South Glen Shiel Ridge. Craig a'Mhaim, the easternmost of the seven Munros seemed an easy destination. After we'd passed the bridge south of Cluanie we followed the old road to Tomdoun to continue on the stalkers path to the top. We took the same route back to Cluanie. The weather and the view made this walk very enjoyable.
