Started and finished at the campsite and walked round to Succoth to then follow the route from here on WH. Started off fairly miserable and cloudy then once I broke out through the cloud I experienced my first cloud inversion. Then on the descent to the bealach between the 2 Munro's it was back under the clouds until re-emerging into sunshine again high on Beinn Ime. The inversion was still fully in place and didn't disperse until well into the afternoon as I was nearing the Cobbler.
Hopeful that the sun will break through

Looking back to the Cobbler

Hopefully that wont be the last time I experience a cloud inversion. I did capture a couple of short vids but not tech savvy enough to know how to put them on here :roll:
