Today there was a chance that the weather might be slightly better east of the main Torridon Mountains so we headed for Slioch. As we began the approach the showers appeared to be staying on the ‘Torridon’ side of Loch Maree however by the time we got to the main corrie it was pretty unpleasant so lunch was taken in the group shelter.
When we set off the conditions improved enough to give us all wonderful ‘intermediate’ views of the summit slopes of this big mountain and Loch Maree below. Once into the cloud we stayed there for our visit to the summit cairn at 981m. Navigation was done using a blend of compass, wind direction and GPS.
We all had a wonderful early dinner in the Whistlestop Cafe, Kinlochewe.
Another Munro day tomorrow then a rest!
