We missed the start of this walk, heading too far along the track beside Loch Treig, and had to climb quite steep slopes to get on to the ridge. Looking at other peoples reports we were not alone :lol:
I absolutely loathe reversing ascent routes, so from the second Munro, rather than doing that, we descended NW - initially on a steep snow ridge - into Coire Laire, followed the burn down and then returned along the dismantled railway. Slightly longer, but a nicer route I think. And I don't remember it being all that boggy :D
Here are the photos - hopefully in the right order :lol:
