CUHWC Roy Bridge trip. 6 western Mamores in a long day.AGWilliamson21/09/2015
The weather was supposed to be terrible today, with heavy rain/snow and high winds, so we decided to go for a walk in the Mamores instead of heading up to Ben Nevis. We did the westernmost part of the Ring of Steall, heading up An Gearanach and west to Stob Ban. A nice ridge walk, in what turned out to be pretty good weather.pwithnall24/03/2015
