Another great day out in the mountain of torridon. Having in the past done Beinn Eighe and Lliathach. I finished the big three must do hill/mountain scramble days out by a traverse of Beinn Alligin.
The weather forecast winds increasing throughout the day, so i was on the hill by 8, and att the first section of ridge scrambling by ten. Not wanting to get caught out and being alone I duck out of the ‘horns’ section. Taking a chicken run that contours the hill.
This seemed to pay divends as after the main summit about 2/3 along the ridge the wind did start to pick up, bringing with it flurries of snow. By the time i got to the last top it was 30mph gusting 40. Still managable on the easier terrain. But i am not sure i would want to be on the horns during it!
Anyway back in the pub, and more importantly the local garage that is open every other tuesday in the winter was somehow open. Not a moment too soon as i drove back from torridon of fumes.
