We left this a bit late in the day as it took far longer to get to Torridon from Shiel Bridge than expected, but managed it just about, in a gale.

Seriously, on Ruadh-stac Mor, the wind must have been 40mph, gusting 50. We were struggling to keep our feet, and had we been on a ridge we would have looked to drop off.
