But a good walk along the same and a nice area.

Where it says " navigation could be dodgy in the mist" - believe it. Couldn't see a thing most of the way from Creag Meagaidh plateau. Reached Mad Meg's cairn and I veered off a wee bit

Catch yourself on I told myself. Gps out- grid got.
Map out, compass set and got myself to the summit ok.

Good practice I like to tell myself.

Nice descent from the Window though and good views back to the rock/ cliff faces, from the lochan.
Must be a good area for the climbers out there

Didn't see any Golden eagles or buzzards that swoop and soar majestically, as advertised on the NNR notice board at the start.

One male and one female ptarmigan and a deer!!! I'm happy with that.

Nice wee visitors book to sign and Info board by the toilet area. Nice touch.

Cap doffed to Creag meagaidh NNR and it's munros

Cheers

Ps. Hello to the 2 lads from the Czech Republic. Hope you reached Carn liath ok and maybe got a view
