Coire Buidhe

Plan A: Beinn Sgulaird and Creach Bheinn
Plan B: Beinn Sgulaird
Plan C: Creach Bheinn

So we should get up a Munro or a Corbett, or even both.

About 50 metres after setting off from Druimavuic, we got our first dose of cold rain. It eased after a while, and with the temperature at sea level being 8C, with full waterproofs deployed we soon began to overheat then feel our nice warm clothing change into a damp, cold waterproof wrapping.

We plodded on along the good track beside Allt Buidhe, watching the rain lashed hillside above us playing hide and seek with the cloud. It looked windy and unpleasant ahead.

Plan D: go to about 500 metres in Coire Buidhe. Take tea. Go home!

So we will now enjoy the rest of the day at Cruachan B&B. We are on holiday...
