Sgor Gaoith and end of the season for Moss

Route: Sgor Gaoith, from Glen Feshie

Munros: Sgor Gaoith

Date walked: 31/08/2020

Time taken: 4.5 hours

Distance: 15.5km

A delayed report on this one. Easy to follow path all the way up and all the way down, a few boggy areas to keep the dogs interested and spotted a reindeer and calf on the way up too. Had a bit of difficulty with the burn crossing but that was mainly due to my lack of confidence when it comes to crossing water! And I had to cross it again on the descent (returned the same way).

This was Moss' 51st Munro. Unfortunately once back home, when she was getting up after a rest she was showing discomfort in her back so got her booked into the vets the very next day. Today she was in for x-rays and has been diagnosed with spondylosis and has started on cartrophen injections. So for the time being she is off the hills :( Hopefully once the bony spurs stop growing and fuse it won't be painful and she can get back to close to normal activity and start doing some hills again though we'll be avoiding boulder fields and lots of steps etc. So Zena will be having some adventures on her own for the time being.

That doesn't look good for your back Moss...
