Meagaidh Munros

For our final walk for this trip we were not looking so lucky with the weather, but determined to make the best of our opportunity to get more high walking in.  We were down to three with this walk.

Difficulty: 7.0
Walkers: Tim, Caroline, Poppy (8)
11:21, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (254)
13:29, 4.6km 2h08 749m, Carn Liath (1006, Munro)
15:18, 10.1km 3h57 965m, Stob Poite Coire Ardair (1054, Munro)
16:16, 12.6km 4h55 1155m, Creag Meagaidh (1128, Munro)
19:08, 20.8km 7h46 1251m, End (253)

We drove up to Loch Laggan and parked at the large car park on the north side at the Creag Meagaidh Nature Reserve.

For the start of this walk it was quite clear and flat.  This wasn't to last.

As we climbed through up out of the nature reserve it started to get misty.

The view up ahead didn't look any less misty.

And now on the way back, we started to see the loch again!  In between we'd walked quite a long way, lots of climbing, three munros, navigating by compass work across a featureless field after Creag Meagaidh, and many instances of trying to find a path to lose height on the way down.  Sadly none of this was dry enough for me to take my phone out to take photos, and even with a GoPro I suspect the photos wouldn't have looked that impressive!
