Due to the poor weather forecast we decided to head up to Drumochter to tick off the outstanding Munro in the area, Meall Chuaich. The walk in was pretty good as they go, good track all the way to the start of the hill but what made it really good was the amount of bird life we saw, Siskins, Grouse, Dunlin, Ring Ouzels, Lapwings, Ringed Plovers and Sand Martins.
We got to the top pretty quick due to it being such a short climb up, (just over 600 metres) but the top was covered in cloud the whole time so we never got to see the view.
