Second summit of the day after Stob Choire Claurigh, descent and re-ascent presented no difficulties on unfrozen snow - in thick cloud at this point. Then in dark, from Lochan, followed Allt a'Chuil Choirean down to the bothy - tricky terrain as unable to identify a path in the dark. Cloud cleared and long walkout on the track north in light of full moonwychwood21/12/2018

Finally to get on to the Grey Corries!! straight up the north ridge of STob Coire Clauridh via the N Top, out to Nan Ceannain and back. west of SCC I meet Tom Hayle a man in his late 70's from the Wirral and learn that he's done two Munro rounds and one completion of the tops but is a non declarer to SMC I go right along ridge to west to Sgurr Coineach Beag and then all the way back again and after getting back to Caisteal again head off the northern slopes contouring round to get on to Stob Ban and after steeply off this in the deepening gloom I call in at the bothy in the valey where some kind resident gives me a hot cuppa before I hoof my way back the 6-7km back to where I'd brought my car up the track util I'd found a locked gate at about half past midnight with still much residual light on this glorious day.
