Thanks Spider, still hope to get back to go up BMA before the winter ends, but yes I remember that drop and the reascent as well, :lol:

Brilliant pictures especially, looking back at the summit and top of the ridge. When you go back to Ben More Assynt the ridge to the south top is worth a look if you haven't been on it. Though to be fair I haven't been on it in winter. :shock:

P.S. Ive found the chip shops in Ullapool to be a bit hit and miss sometimes. :D
