John and I, day 2 of van outing in Strath Conon - 10.45 to 5.15pm.
Quick drive to Strathmore and steep grassy pull up onto ridge, then excellent underfoot on path!
top 1st summit 1.30pm - decent break - cold wind but below cloud, again no rain... result.
then easy descent and quick ascent thro rocks to high bealach and up good angled, short grass to ridge and final break at 2nd summit 3pm. Steep descent thro crags to left of ridge and wide peaty bealach. descent lot better than expected to corrie floor and very dry underfoot to top final steep slope back to car - thankfully over quickly as knee feeling it a bit.aviemore/Kincraig for tea stop -coffee/soup/pizza overlooking lochan.
