A fine hill in some grand terrain and I was fortunate to be out in some fine weather.

Approaching the area where a left turn is made to reach the path between Fuar Tholl and Sgorr Ruadh.

Looking up towards to where the path divides for Coire Lair and I guess for reaching Lochs Coulin and Clair....this is beyond the point where we cross the burn for our route.

All a bit new to me in this area since my own approaches to Sgorr Ruadh, Beinn Liath Mhor and the two Corbetts out northwards to Glen Torridon were made from the Glen via the Ling Cottage.

The area where a left turn can be made to get around the tops of the crags and then on to Fuar Tholl....An Ruadh-stac and Maol Chean-dearg can be seen from here.

Descent was south eastwards down some rocky slopes to reach the rail track which provided a handrail into the station.

Those pics are giving me itchy feet! I'm already looking forward to walking there when my bagging addiction takes me to that area in a few years time. Stunning! :D
