Strathconnon Corbetts - August 2012
The long drive from Kincraig meant we did both Sgurr a Mhuilinn and Bach an Eich on the same day

 The clag that was shrouding the Cairngorms and Inverness area early on. Our hills were basking in sunshine  The cloud layer starting to burn off  Our particularly choice ascent route - flies and horseflies everywhere.  Looking back NE up the glen towards Ben Wyvis  Looking ESE towards Creag Ghaineamhach  Plodding up Sgurr a' Mhuilinn. Pretty hard work in the heat  Our first hill of the day, Sgurr a' Mhuilinn, in the distance  Still slogging uphill in the heat  The blanket of cloud gradually burning back       Summit not far now       Torridon  Torridon again    Creag Ghlas  Ptarmigan   Slabs on Creag Ghlas where some of our mates are climbing today       Messing about near the summit   Torridon   Heading up hill number 2  Showers all around but somehow we stayed dry
