Went to Dunvegan Church in the morning. Sea Eagle very close to the car from the road down into the glen. Set off from the Glenbrittle campsite at half past 1. Lori stayed at beach with boys, made their way up some of the Coire Lagan track.

Moved fast, due to waiting lift. Deer in Coire. Scree hard graft, cut off to soon to make ridge to right. Had to double back on myself to to broken rock/grassy steep slopes.

Had a crisis of confidence once on SgMC ridge, but composed myself. The crux in the guide wasn't too bad.

Quick turnaround at the top, back down to Loch in setting sun. Lovely clear, sunny, late year walking. Clocks go back next weekend, which would make this walk to this timescale impossible.

My final solo Cuillin Munro. Just the In Pinn to do. Lovely family waiting happy in the car, watching iPlayer on the tablet. Back to Clach Glas.
