My intention was to walk the eastern 4 Munro's but the weather didn't play ball and when a freezing downpour hit me just before the summit of Druim Shionnach I found I'd lost my gloves and couldn't feel my hands, so that, added to the fact there were no views made up my mind to call it quits and headed down the north ridge to Loch a'Mhaoil Dhisnich where a path leads down to the outward track.

As ever, as soon as I started to descend, the rain stopped and some views opened up but then again my fingers were so numb that no photo's were possible.
