Wonderful day out in Glen Nevis. Weather was very kind to us and we had clear tops all day

On the side of An Gearanach, see Nevis Gorge and the campsite at Steall Bridge below. (cross the river at the gravel area above Steall Bridge past the waterfall)

Arriving at An Garbhanach where it get much rockier, an exciting section to come!

We went round the side of a short section thinking that would be easier with the dog, but it may have been easier to go straight over the top as other walkers were doing. It was fun hanging on though whilst trying to keep high.

After an exciting scramble up Am Bodach enjoying fine views all the way round we arrived at the 1001m spot height just before the Devil's ridge leading to Sgurr a Mhaim. Great fun to cross over and not too daunting provided you've a head for heights and low winds. Be prepared also to allow plenty time for the long walk-off back down into Glen Nevis.
