Had a bit of spare time this week thought it would be a good idea to hit the road to Assynt and wild camp on Cul Mor :lol: . We left Tuesday night at 11pm, and after 10 hours in the car pulled into the car park near Knockan Crag. It was foggy all the way but cleared up nicely when we got to Assynt, not may clouds in the sky but temps were low. Path was good, a few boggy patches but mostly frozen, a bit of snow at the top.
