Nice trip up early morning on the train. Usual route under the station from the platform and then straight up. Path seemed in reasonable condition on way up.

Entering the corrie, the clouds were down over the edges of the cliffs and vis obviously poor. Wind already strong.

On top, wind pretty strong and awkward to walk along cliff edges and summits due to buffeting. Couldnt see further than 5 metres in places so nav was hard, especially Beinn an Dothaidh.
