Not really too much to say about this trip, was a fine day and gave me an opportunity to test out my new mountain bike between the ski centre and the lower car park.

Initial walk in was quite soggy from the car park to the lower slopes of Carn an Tuirc

Once up onto the hill it was quite stony though and good for walking, at least until down on the otherside heading towards Tolmount when it was very boggy again.

Summit cairn of Cairn of Claise, was just into the clouds at this point. Also was past the worst of the bog by this point with good ground to cover for the last two Munros.
