Excellent E to W traverse from Kinlochleven to Callert House over the three tops - Beinn na Caillich, 755m top and Mam na Gualainn. Excellent steep snow to first top - quite challenging, then bouncing along on good snow all along the ridge. Only downside was the descent path which was as wet and boggy as ever.
