The path going up Carn Liath is good. There is still work going on in the lower sections.

Hill fog at +800 meters or so and visibility about 50m to 100m. Showers throughout the day and some snow on the tops of the further 2. Steady wind throughout.

The path coming down Carn N G is boggy from where you leave the original path going up. At the lower section you join the stone path and its great to walk/run on.

A super day out, fresh/breezy/cold at times/slippy at times/wet constantly/snow high up.
Work on lower path but higher up is great
