Looked like great conditions for it Petr. If I remember rightly it took me about an hour to get from the SW top to the summit due to deep, unconsolidated snow (a few years ago). Exhausting but the views made it all worthwhile! :)

Amazing panos for the whole walk, it seems. Great stuff :thumbup:

One of my best days in the Highlands culminated on Sgulaird, with similarly hyper-ventilation inducing views (albeit with the hills in a different mood).

Good to see you back in authorial mode again - I'd wondered where you'd got to!!! :)

(PS what's the accompanying music??)

The views were great almost all the walk, powered by the sun, still changing colours, shades and brightness during the way. Some care needed on the slippy - snowy - stony ground especially over the tops, but very enjoyable day :D
