Glen Scaddle - June 2012
A long cycle up Glen Scaddle to tick off two relatively remote hills

 Cycling into Glen Saddle - it's a pretty decent landrover track to the bothy  Mike  Our objectives for the day a long way in the distance  Slow worm  Tighnacomaire Bothy  Sundew  Sgurr Dhomhnuill showing the slabs we clambered up en-route to the col and summit  Mike on the summit of Carn na Nathrach  Playing on the grippy slabs   Completely unecessary and avoidable but good fun  Although this was perhaps a step too far as I ended up climbing up a stream  Mike takes the sensible option and  walks round the side photographing the idiot in the stream  Lack of flexibility = knees required   Summit views, looking south towards Garbh Beinn (distant) and Beinn na h-Uamha (closer)  Looking back down Glen Scaddle  Summit views, looking south towards Garbh Beinn (distant) and Beinn na h-Uamha (closer)   Some adventurous sheep that have escaped the shearers  Sgurr Dhomhnuill  More sundew  Back to the bothy again  Looking back to the hills we climbed
