Days 3 and 4 off our Knoydart trip

So  Tuesday dawned great again,another day started above the clouds.Todays first peak was Luinne Bheinn,we saw these guys hanging around

This happened to be Lee,s  100th Munro

On route to Meall Buidhe

Ive never carried a brolly before and never dreamed of using it to keep the heat off..But this being a great wk the weather peaked at 27.1 c as we descended into the valley heading to Sourlies bothy

Loch Nevis was a lovely green and clear site

Sgurr na Ciche looking big

September in scotland !!

 We choose to camp outside due to the sad amout of rubbish that was filling lots of bags in the bothy,sadly i think CW walkers are using it as a rubbish dump

As the sun dropped the midge came out and the temp dropped nicely,so i tfollowed the tide out,was nice to have the sea between my toes....two pans of fresh Mussels for a late supper

Next morning and yes the sun was shining out of a great blue sky again

Last time i did these peaks it was a wet windy struggle following that wall,which seemed to go on for ever...never seeing a thing...no such problems today

Can nearly see the end of the walk

Time for a brew camped on Gairbh Chioch Bheag

We camped around 4-30 ish and sat supping a little wisky just looking out to sea

It was a lovely nite but the wind picked up too 20-35 through mid evening and remained till the end of the walk  ....but im not complaing
