Extended the walk by returning through the valley rather than retracing our steps. Saw lots of yellow bellied frogs, and met a friendly gentleman who had climbed all the Munros and was doing them again!
Great views of Torridon and Benn Alligin.
Someone had helpfully written 'hill' with an arrow in stones at the start of the walk.

Any pics of the South ridge? Did you descend or ascend that one? From what I could see of that side of the mountain, it looked a bit slimy and slabby - I was happy with the NW side of it though so I can always just stick to that...
