Day 5 and 6 off our Knoydart trip

 So after a bit of a breezy nite we woke to a cooler morning and a distant weak sunset.The wind would be with us for the next two days now,but the cun came out again !! and the views were still distant......






Sunrise




Most of the next days peaks in this pic

Our camp spot was ontop of this lovely peak,Sgurr na Ciche just peaking behind



Sgurr Mor on the left


 Todays wind was a bit fresh near constant 20 with some gusts up around 40 mph









            
Our last camp spot is on the shoulder of the last peak ,Giarich

Sgurr Mor,what a great shaped mountain





The red roof of Kinbreak bothy,far below



   




Giarich summit behind camp,our windiest constant 25,s and gusts too 45 +  both shelters never moved once pegged down...a very welcome brew and tea






Birdseye view of Duomid


Now we normally get our shelter mods from Robin,but this ones MINE !! The velcro works great at holding your socks out in the wind to dry ...



















 The last day and you just knew a change was in the weather,but some how it held to make it six stunning days back to back




Last day,we camped just were the sun is touching the shoulder


Cant see it but had a bit of a spectre again,and fittingly on our last peak of the trip,Giariach summit at 8 am 

The Ben looking big,as always










First bit of tarmac in six days ...great trip,great company


Taken from the road on our walk back to the car,which was only for 3 miles before we snagged a lift






Horses at Loch Hourn road end   



Yes,it is chewing a bone !!






So after a shower and tea,our last nite was in a lodge at Tyndrum,the weather has changed ....... thanks all for reading....safe travels Peter
