12th April came ... and so did the sunshine
Asides from the ascent and descent which were mostly clear, there was still a nice amount of snow for the majority of the walk - Had crampons with us, but never needed them, and only used the ice axes to get to/from the 2nd (and most spectacular!) summit, Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg. We followed the WH route, so nothing unique to describe on that front, but thought I'd put a few photos here to at least give people an idea of current snow levels in the Kintail / Glen Shiel area (and surrounding areas - the views were superb!) in case anyone's heading there this weekend ...
A great day out, thanks JS!!
