Just me,no walking for a few weeks so picked this longish walk to get me back into it.Followed the WH route,thought about the near-by Corbett but thick cloud at top of Beinn Dearg so gave it a miss.Good day and pretty dry under foot considering the rain in the past week.

Looked like we had all the water, should have gone for the distance walk on good paths. Jake was lucky I had Ian to talk to, fitness coming back but I still get lonely on the steep bits
