A nice White Christmas walk in soft snow. Up the track, over the metal bridge and up the ridge. Interesting descent to the bealach with Beinn Direach. Quite a surprise to find all those rocky shelves to dodge round, and slightly relieved that the mist had cleared. On to Beinn Direach.Gill25/12/2017
