Munros: A' Chralaig, Carn Ghluasaid, Mullach Fraoch-choire, Sail Chaorainn, Sgurr nan Conbhairean

Date walked: 08/05/2016

Time taken: 9 hours

Distance: 26.3km

Ascent: 2162m

Left the house at 4.30am to arrive at Loch Cluanie 7am to be met with considerable low cloud so decided to sit and see if it lifted. After small power nap was off at 8am heading up 1st Munro of the day Carn Ghluasaid. The cloud was still lingering when reaching the summit but occasionally would get a glimpse of the others so headed off the second and third of the day Sail Chaorainn and Sgurr nan Conbhairean stopping for a few pics and a bite to eat. Eventually crossing over to A' Chralaig the sun appeared and cloud eventually disappeared opening up spectacular views. Once at the summit the jacket was off, loads of pics taken and pushed on to last of the day Mullach Fraoch-choire where the sun tan was topped up. After about 30mins taking in the view it was time to head out knowing I still had to walk up the road back to the car as I decided just to leave the bike in the car rather than dropping it off but eventually got back to the car 5pm.
