On seeing Sgorr Ruadh I had to give it a go...

So it was off to Achnashellach, head up to Coire Lair

then cross the river

I had followed the WH route up the stalkers path but passed the lochans on the western side rather than the eastern side as WH. The weather was pleasant lower down but quite wild as height was gained.

Looking back to Fuar Tholl...

The summit is a great viewpoint.
Over to Beinn Liath Mhor

There were periods of bright sunshine then clouds would blow through

Foolishly I hadn't brought enough water and I hesitated about continuing on to Beinn Liath Mhor - I regret that now. I returned by the ascent route.

Would recommend Sgorr Ruadh, attractive peak with great views.

One of my faves.

That first photo of this fabulous hill from the Torridon side is outstanding, and shows a really different view of it. :clap:
