Early morning round with Rob Wight, from Old Corrie as forecast rain later. Superb clear round, in high wind, with extensive views. 4 hours.alexmaclennan22/05/2017
On horseshoe walk from Coire-chat-achan. Though the ascent of Beinn na Caillich was often tedious, the ridge walk from there was delightful, enlivened by many species of arctic and high moorland moths flying in the warm sunshine. To the bealch was bare and gravelly, on the climb there was more vegetation and moss, so there were plenty of midges too- above 2000 ft. Grand views from summit. Surprisingly rough descent to next bealach, proved to be very slow going.pwheeler18/06/2016
On a round of the Red Cuillin. The view over to the snowy Black Cuillin was pretty unbelievable.Alex C29/04/2016
