Almost at road for short walk to midge car parkImage

Summary:
Late start to avoid weather - 1115. Car park spacious, quiet. Cloud cover appreciated after Fisherfields/An Teallach/Fannichs in blue skies. Midges still out when you stop. Easy walk - path and nav no problem, nice not to have to take map out except to confirm summits. No water till reaching road in Glen Nevis. Back at midged car park for 1615. Easily combined with Ring of Steall for a full day, but easy half days are nice too. Satisfying day.
