Weather forecasts suggested that the visibility would be good today from around noon, and it turned out to be a good day with fantastic views. When I arrived at the first munro it was still covered in clouds, but they lifted during the next hour.

Snow patches at the top of Coire na Tulaich and Coire Altruim forced me to do some short detours that required some extra care. I guess the snow patches soon will be gone.
