Summary:
Start: 08:54. Very windy, but enough in the forecast to suggest decent visibility. Couple of rain showers blew in from west, managed to sit them out behind east face of boulder. Full waterproofs and gaiters. Also v wet underfoot for the whole approach, almost until summit. Great views of Glen Kingie, Garry and Loch Quoich though limited towards Knoydart. No encounters. No wildlife. Straightforward there and back walk in blustery autumnal conditions. Glad to get back to car. Finish: 15:17
