With the weather forecast poor to say the least it was more of when would the heavy rain hit us rather than if, and with that in mind I decided to pack my emergency shelter as I knew sometime during the day we would be grateful for it Having just come from the Bunroy Campsite at Roybridge time was not going to be an issue so by 1030 hrs we were parked up at the official parking area at Kilfinnan and booted up ready to go. There were no other cars so we were not expecting to see any others on the hill until maybe on the way back. The plan was to climb the Westerly Munro of Meall na Teanga first the back to the bealach then up to Sron a' Choire Ghairbh then maybe head over to pick up the Corbett of Ben Tee on the way back but only if the weather had been kind to us, GraemeD had done it in the opposite direction.

We found it a Godsend, especially at a time you think you've had enough, it keeps most of the wind at bay and at least you can have your tea/coffee and a snack without getting any wetter, you have yo be quite quick getting your bum on top of the sheet to keep it from flying awaaaaaaaaaay, lol
