We’ve had more then our fair share of luck with the weather this week but we’ll claim the credit for a sound decision today. With high wind and heavy rain forecast we switched from mountaineering over rocky ridges to the collection of Oli’s 50th Munro. Fionn Bheinn is described in Cameron McNeish’s Munros book as being ‘an uninspiring hill, rising behind Achnasheen, which, since its hotel burnt down doesn’t have a lot going for it either’. This seems unkind to Achnasheen which seems nice enough to me and particularly unkind to the mountain which gave me, Russ and Oli a lovely, and by in large dry and bright morning out today. It’s been a great week in Wester Ross where in our five days on the hills we’ve seen more Golden Eagles than people.
