Well Will and I had an early start munro bagging today. He and his friends had to head back to South Wales today, and Sarah was heading South for work. So while they went off dry tooling, Will and I decided to go grab the Munro we hadn't managed yesterday.
What a difference a few hours can make! Yesterday was clear blue skies, today was whiteout. Yesterday we could see miles on end, today we could see 50m, so long as the other of us was standing there. otherwise you couldn't see a thing. Just white.
So thats my excuse for the lack of photos, nothing to take them of.
Instead we practiced walking on a bearing. Well I practices while Will corrected me. We did this by him standing in one place. I would walk off on my bearing for about 50m then turn around and look back at him. He would then indicate left, right or OK. to indicate which way I needed to correct my bearing. I would then stamp a platform and start again while he made his way to my platform.
In this manner we navigated our way across the plateau, first to one minor summit, followed by a second then a munro.
We then turned and headed back for the BBV. From the 'h' on the righthand of the picture, to the 'F' of Fuar Mhonadh we saw nothing. Just white. That said when we did have a view we saw huge numbers of Arctic bunnies. At one point we counted 20.
We were off the hill and back in the BBV by 1:20pm. not bad going for a mornings walk.
