We were expecting to leave the rain behind us the further north we drove, and I had packed shorts and sun cream. Far too optimistic as it turned out. The weather forecasters had got it wrong again! The ascent of Carn Liath was very wet to start with, but although the sun refused to shine the rain did stop, and we enjoyed the view from the top. Dried out by now we continued on to the 2nd Munro - Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain, almost 100m higher than Carn Liath. The cloud was still well down over Carn nan Gabhar so we gave Munro #3 a miss and descended the south ridge of #2 to pick up the path back to the car.
