Stats: 5hrs55, 11.2km, 1,297m ascent. Weather: hot & sunny. Notes: glorious scrambling along ‘the horns’ of Na Rathanan ridge; excellent views from Munros.millionmts07/09/2019
With: hb; From the car park, walked up Coire MhicNobaill, crossed the two bridges then scrambled up the south east ridge to the Horns (Na Rathanan). Supern scrambling over the horns in glorious sunshine, being followed by the beast od Alligin (a Collie which chose the stay with us rather than return to its owners who were half an hour behind us!). We descended to the bealach then walked up to Sgurr Mhor where we had lunch. We looked down impressive Eag Dhubh (Black cleft) on the path across to Tom nan Gruagaich. The descent path down Coire nan Laogh was tedious but gave good views back to start. This was a superb walk after so much rain. The paths have changed out of all recognition since my first visit in 1978.Ian Baines29/05/2019

1st YHS New Year Torridon meet. W Brad, Chris M, Sally, Sarah . Overnight snow covered the grass and rocks. Occasional spindrift blasts in-between some sunshine.Horrific drops to N from top of this first horn.The descent was a dangerous and tricky grovel to join a narrow skirting path which we followed nervously through calf deep snow (axes out) missing out the 2nd horn on steep side slope until climbing up to the main summit and cairn where Chris M's apple rolled away off the edge to much hilarity.Chris Pearson30/12/1983
