The weather forecast for our final day in Glen Carron and Torridon was fairly good, although we were looking for a fairly early start and the skies were still quite overcast.

We followed the normal WH route, up past the bothy (which looked like it had been in use recently) and took the path up towards the bealach between the munro and neighbouring corbett.

From the bealach there is a still climb of about 100 metres before levelling off a little while before the final stiff pull up sharp granite blocks. As was par for the course for this week the clouds rolled in as we got to the top, so we had a quick snack and photo before heading down.

On the way down the sun eventually broke through and the clouds dispersed (typical!), and we met quite a few people heading up.

We were quickly back at the van and decided we had enough time to drive back to north Wales.

In total during the week we had bagged 13 munros in seven days, leaving 10 to compleat :D
