The best weather by far on the 1991 trip to Scotland. Cluanie- Am Bathach- Ciste Dubh- Aonach Meadhoin- Sgurr a'Bhealaich Dheirg- Saileag- Sgurr a'Bhealaich Dheirg- Meall a' Charra- Cluanie, with brother, Pete. Am Batach was a fairly brutal addition to the Munros- thanks to Ralph Storer. But it was a worthwhile addition, a good traverse of a big hill.pwheeler22/05/1991
