Left the house at 4.30am to arrive at Loch Cluanie 7am to be met with considerable low cloud so decided to sit and see if it lifted. After small power nap was off at 8am heading up 1st Munro of the day Carn Ghluasaid. The cloud was still lingering when reaching the summit but occasionally would get a glimpse of the others so headed off the second and third of the day Sail Chaorainn and Sgurr nan Conbhairean stopping for a few pics and a bite to eat. Eventually crossing over to A' Chralaig the sun appeared and cloud eventually disappeared opening up spectacular views. Once at the summit the jacket was off, loads of pics taken and pushed on to last of the day Mullach Fraoch-choire where the sun tan was topped up. After about 30mins taking in the view it was time to head out knowing I still had to walk up the road back to the car as I decided just to leave the bike in the car rather than dropping it off but eventually got back to the car 5pm.

Good to be back, been an eventful last couple of years to say the least but hopefully back to it now. Been doing the odd Munro/corbet now and again but was delighted to get them 5 in with good weather. Into Culra this weekend and back to the Kintails next weekend so hopefully start getting a good few under my belt.
Good to hear from you. :)
