The last couple of days I’ve been up in the Dundonnell and Torridon area enjoying some very hot and sunny weather. On Friday John and I started from Corriehallie and ascended Sail Liath and Stob Cadha Gobhlach before descending the Cadha Gobhlach to Loch Toll an Lochain and out via the Garbh Allt.
Yesterday, I went for an early start to be down before the forecast afternoon thunder storms and kept a keen eye on the clouds; big isolated hills aren’t a great place to be caught out in a lightening storm. I started from Coulags and headed up the very appropriately named Maol Chean-dearg (bald red head) before returning to the triple col and climbing An Ruadh-stac. The East ridge of the later very rocky hill gives delightful walking and easy scrambling up quartzite slabs and boulders.
