Summary:
Left car at 06:47. Midges rife in glens, very quick stream stops to refill before ascent to dry plateau. Great visibility with views of Torridon and Assynt mountains. Going good and dry. Long but excellent day. Adding Seana Bhraigh would've been a mammoth trip, poss combine with summit camp in future. Return to car 19:22.
