From Aberarder car park. Clockwise circuit of the three Creag Meagaidh Munros ascending through The Window.welshyboyo04/01/2020
Climbed from Aberarder car park to do the Creag Meagaidh circuit, with Carn Laith first, Stob Poite Coire Ardair then Creag Meagaidh, retuning down the Coire Ardair path from The Window. Once above Na Cnapanan, very thick mist pretty much throughout with very strong winds. Meet Richard on the summit of Carn Laith, thankfully we teamed up to do the other two in the circuit, as without his GPS I would have turned back to the car park. 07:10 hrs all in.chillyman805/10/2019
