Atmospheric day up on The Five Sister of Kintail ridge with John. Spent much of the time on the ridge in the clouds, though there were clear patches earlier on. Ground was very wet and the resulting mixture of mud and wet slabby rock made for a slippery ridge walk. We had cars at both ends, but John left his car keys in my car (whoops), so we managed to blag a lift from kind stranger at the Jac-o-bite back up to my car.mproudfoot11/10/2020

3/3 - then further ascend over more snow and broken ground to 3rd Munro summit - again the descent is tricky in snow. Also took in Sgurr nan Saighead then descended and walked out via the long Allt a' Chruinn valley. Sting in the tail is the prolonged stepped descent down to the villagewychwood04/03/2019
