Beinn a' Chrulaiste - Rocky Hill

Allowed out again, and recovered from the food poisoning, so off to the hills

The revamped Kingshouse Hotel - how were they allowed to do that?  My hill lies directly behind it.  Buachille Etive Mor on the left, obviously.

Heading up into Coire Bhalach.  Weather deteriorating.

Time to turn left, up the hill and into the rain and mist.  Great.

And then the top.  Not been much of a view so far.

My new jacket is definitely waterproof.  Enjoying the beautiful views at the top.

As usual, when I came off the top the weather cleared a bit. 

Looking west - Aonach Eagach under the clouds with Garbh Bheinn protruding to the right.

Devil's Staircase

Lairig Gartain and Buachaille Etive Beag come into view

And to the north, the wonderful Mamores.

That is more like it.  Blackwater Reservoir on the right.  Loch Treig hills behind.  Coming further left we should have Sgurr Eilde Mor, Binnien Mor, Na Gruagaichean and loads more Mamores.

Buachaille Etive Mor, and Bidean nam Biam under the clouds

Quite a vista. 

And a final shot of the Buachaille to round of the day.
Great to be back on the hills, if somewhat knackering.
