After a big day on the Ring of Steall we wanted a shorter day before we headed up to the North West for the rest of the week.

We decided to tick off a Munro where Becky had previously climbed one of a pair. We headed to Chno Dearg which is above Fersit and from the guidebook sounded like it had a fairly horrible and wet approach. Thankfully the bog at the bottom was frozen solid, and all of the slopes up to the summit were covered solid neve which enabled quick progress to be made up to the top. As we approached the top the wind picked up and slowed our progress slightly.

The views from the top were absolutely fantastic, we could see the Ring of Steall which was nice after completing it the day before. Looking east we could see the Ardverikie Munros and Creag Meagaidh and looking to the North we could see all the way up to Torridon.

After a quick descent we again managed to cross the bog with dry and clean shoes and then enjoyed a stunning drive up to Torridon.
