Up at 7.30 had a look outside and guess what it’s snowing , it’s June for god sake . Had breakfast and by then things had brightened up, headed off at 9.15 Jake with his big pack and me travelling light as I was returning to the bothy tonight . It wasn’t far to Carn a’Chlamain and by the time we got there it was clear but as usual windy, we said our good-byes here jake heading back to the Glen Tilt car park to his car. I was now on my own again and heading to Beinn Dearg , it’s a trackless route with plenty of heather and bog to contend with 2 hrs later I was on the summit with the snow coming sideways in the strong wind so no view here. Compass bearing to get a path and was now heading for the Corbett Beinn Bhreac it was clear and bright now but always windy , over the summit and again trackless as I headed for Carn an Fhidhleir a hail shower just before the top but still clear. One more hill to do and now I was on a well worn path now , down to the bealach through some big snow patches through some bog and the final climb of the day , the weather was changing now and 15 minutes after leaving the summit the rain was on not to bad at first but soon got heavier , luckily I only had a hour to get back and after eventually getting across the river it was back to the dryness of the Tarf Hotel Bothy. There was some odds and ends of wood so I managed to get a fire going and the clothes dried . It’s been hammering down rain since and Now all the streams and river are in full spate , looks like a route change tomorrow me thinks that’s if it ever stops raining . Only wildlife seen today worth mentioning was Jake emerging from his sleeping bag this morning ( not a pretty sight) .
Job done forever battling the elephants .
Luckily only 7hrs 39 mins
