Description

Set off at late morning across the saturated boggy moor. Approach shoes full of water through the big hole on top in minutes. Bit of a slog up Cnoc Sgriodain and then a simple traverse along the side of Creag an Lochain.

The final hill slopes to the summit were snow covered and in some places a few inches deep. Wind really whipped up around the final ascent to the top and I had to stop and lean on my walking poles a couple of times so I wasn’t blown over.
