A very windy and wet day on the hill, snowline at 600m.
Constant rain and Snow fron the start ,we made a steep climb up onto the ridge of Sgurr a Fhurail which gave us some protection from the elements for a while.
In full gusts approx 50mph, walking became very arduous, and navigation was difficult.snow underfoot was mainly ok with some areas drifted and upto knee depth occasionally.
we summited the 2nd munro and then returned with the wind in our faces getting sandblasted by spindrift.
