An easy route following a clear track all the way up to Creag nan Gabhar and rather than descending to Loch Callater we descended the same way. Unfortunately though the forecast had looked better, the White Mounth was in cloud but there were good views and clear skies over Ben Avon! There were loads of butterflies out - painted ladies, red admiral, small tortoiseshells, small heather, common blue and a fritillary I didn't get a good look at to identify.

Don't think I need a guide to tell me this one is probably not a safe one to eat...but I don't like mushrooms anyway!
