Carn Eilrig

Date walked: 07/11/2020

Time taken: 6 hours

Distance: 16km

Ascent: 450m

Didn't feel much like walking but thought I ought to do something with the fine weather.

Image
The pea soup I drove through looks so innocuous from a distance.

Image
Lochan Deo.

Image
A fine morning sky to encourage me along the track.

Image
Target ahead.

Image
I find the forecast of windlessness off-putting but the cool morning temperature helps.

Image
I opted for the burnside path but staying on the track would have been easier. Still ok though, just a bit boggy in places.

Image

Image

Image

Image
The great bulk of Braeriach ahead.

Image
Sgoran Dubh Mor looking grand.

Image
Not sure who these belong to but my guess is Sgor Gaoith.

Image
Sgor Gaoith summit where I took our dog Bracken for her one and only Munro.

Image

Image
The admittedly not very exciting route up to Carn a' Phris-ghiubhais.

Image
The fine headwall of Coire Odhar.

Image

Image
A reminder of the fog to the north.

Image
First glimpse of Loch Eanaich.

Image
Lurcher's Crag.

Image
Less impressive view than that further west.

Image
A long walk is an act of will. I think I see a long walk plan forming in my head.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Lurcher's Crag again.

Image
Meall a' Bhuachaille.

Image

Image

Image
A way to Braeriach.

Image
It is a pleasant walk along the short ridge.
