Best laid plans and all that. We had a originally set off with the intent of walking up Cioch na h-Oighe and walking along to Goat Fell, but one of the group was distinctly not keen on the look of it. As seems to be our fashion a detour was devised. Climbing up Mullach Buidhe instead to complete the walk did give a fantastic bonus of amazing views of the Cioch ridge. After the yomp up Mullach it was easy enough to find the path that we originally had planned to take and with the weather as it was it made for one of the best days we have had on Arran. I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
