W Isles family campervan trip - return journey
dropped of at Slig at 1pm
Lorna/Ewan off to Portree (via Broadfords now closed vivarium reptiles)
took route via Allt Daraich but made mistake following path to foot Druim na Ruaidh, should have followed burn directly into coire na sgairde. traversed across into coire and bealach and steep scree/grass ascent to clagged summit for 3pm. Prayer flags? Quick break and text to Lorna to rendezvous at Slig for 4.30 to catch 5.30 ferry from Armadale. Took direct scree descent to pub in 1hr arriving 4.15pm so time to relax before picked up. typically hill now clear cloud...
Missed 5.30 ferry but luckily an extra 7pm on put on. Mallaig excellent chippy at Jaffys.
