Fingers crossed all week that the good weather would remain until the weekend. Planned to head up to Loch Quoich for Spidean Mialach and Gleouraich on the Saturday but Friday's forecast suggested Sunday would be better.

Was hoping to be up there around sunrise - got up

Parked in the wee layby opposite the end of the track down from Gleouraich beside the construction works and pipes. Then walked back down the road a bit to start up the track for Spidean Mialach - thought anti-clockwise may be better so that the easterly wind would be behind me on the ridge but, as it turned out, there was hardly any wind most of the day.

That single track road from the A87 to Loch Hourn. I didn't know they could make such a thin bit of road, that long.

Did quite a few trips to Knoydart usually staying at the Barrisdale bothy. Nice hills, very remote.
