Time taken: 4.3 hours

Distance: 10.63km

Ascent: 911m

Conditions were forecast to be a bit misty in the morning, maybe some rain /snow. Good old weatherman spot on, grrrr :)
Parked up by the burn again and cut up diagonally right and up to another path to cut up diagonally right again. Boggy and wet underfoot all the way to the stile (in inverted commas).

Pole lobbed through, bergan taken off, fought my way through the wee gap, bergan back on, pole retrieved, and carried on round and up. The stile debacle concludes later!
Rained a wee bit, and looking ahead I wasn't expecting any views today. Higher up a white path came into view Head for that. One set of prints in it. Up over the false summits and up to the cairn - and the snow came on. The phone came back out of its waterproof pouch at this point - I dont know why!

Nothing too heavy. No views meant no hanging around, so back the same way. It cleared a bit as I looked back a few times.
A few sheep stayed in front of me for a bit down to the " stile" then they taught me a lesson, as they barged through the gate beside the stile. Had a chuckle to myself as I followed.
Back down and after 4 days it was time to head south. Rather than going through Glencoe again I opted for the Argyll coastal route and a visit to the cafe at Castle stalker viewpoint.

Another castle bagged :D
