Parked at the layby to the East of Cluanie Inn. Initially a pleasant ascent along the estate road then cut off up to the ridge. Soon we were on the ridge, but unfortunately, also in the mist and fog. So denied of any view for the pretty much the entire walk. Progress was slow in the wind and the wet, the only minor excitement occurred where we missed the path and mistakenly started to descend a spur. After the first 4 Munros, we descended off the ridge, following a stalkers path back down to the glen. Here we finally managed to a taste of the views we had been missing.

A good exercise, but looking forward to enjoying the second half in better weather!
