Second day of walking with Iain from our base at Ullapool.
After yesterday my right knee was very sore tendon at the side giving me sharp pain so I was a bit worried about managing to the top and back, but we took our time and completed walk. From the car park the start is boggy and further on a difficult river crossing I managed to cross by jumping from rock to rock and stayed dry, Iain was more cautious and went up stream and waded across then changed his socks which worked out ok.
Like yesterday the cloud lifted as we walked up and we had fine views over to Bheinn Dearg and An Teallach.
The walk down was long and we had a couple of stops my shoulders became very sore I will need to try and reposition the straps tomorrow and avoid the discomfort.
Then it was back to the youth hostel to make our tea, lots of new people in all sorts of nationalities. Ullapool is getting decked out for a festival at the weekend bunting and a large marquee have been erected today.
