Due to the morning being better again we head another early start for the very remote Seana Bhraigh. We made good use of our bikes on the approach which was down good estate tracks.

Our route was up the imposing ridge on the east side of Luchd Choire up An Sgurr and then along to Creag an Duine. To avoid cross the river twice we decided to make the most of the dry conditions and cross the heathery ground which would normally be horribly boggy. This seemed to work for us, but usually would probably be horrible!

The ridge looked very imposing from the bottom, but after a very steep approach up a grassy slope it was generally very straightforward. There was a very exposed scramble to get up to the peak of the ridge, followed by an easy but exposed downclimb, before a short wall which was even more exposed than the previous sections.

Unfortunately, as we got to the top the cloud had started to come in, but as we descended on the route around to the Munro we dropped out of the cloud and were greeted with totally different views, and surprisingly grassy slopes.

We were soon at the summit, where we could have been anywhere thanks to the cloud, and then made a quick descent hoping to avoid the rain. We did get a bit wet on the walk back to the bikes, but it wasn’t too bad.

The bikes made the 8km track out really enjoyable, as it was gently downhill for most of the route out. This meant we were back at the car in about 30mins, and before the worst of the rain hit shortly after we left the car park.
