Munros: Meall Chuaich

Date walked: 17/09/2019

It was cold at 7:30am when I started, the sun wasn't over the hills yet. It managed it finally as I walked beside the aqueduct.

The walk is exactly as described here in WH, long walk in and then short sharp climb to the top. The climb starts boggy and it doesn't improve till the first steep slope is finished and then it is good walking until boulders reached and they come in bands getting bigger the higher up the hill till the top is reached.

Didn't hang around as I could see rainbows all around and rain plumes behind. Luckily they all missed.
Walked more to the north to get a look at the loch from above.
