We had the AE to ourselves on Monday, and after a cloudy, breezy and cool start, the clouds eventually lifted and we enjoyed a calm dry traverse. We even took the time to linger on the flank of the mountain as we descended steeply back to Achtriochtan and catch up on Paul's work commitments! It's ironic you get a better reception there in Glencoe than at my house!
Tuesday was an even better forecast, and apart from the fact the stillness let loose the midges, it was a great day to be on the hills. We did the clockwise round of Ben Lui's main coire, up one ridge and down the other. The scrambling is easy if a little loose and vegetated, but very atmospheric. We had both wanted to do this route for a good while, so even the tedious trudge out to Dalrigh along the track couldn't wipe the smile off our faces. Mountain bikes next time though!
