Companions: Dougie
Weather: Excellent - very sunny and clear

This is the second part of a 2 day trip in the Mamores. The first day is recorded here : The Mamores – Day 1.

After an overnight camp at Coire an Lochan, we awoke to excellent weather, but millions of midges. It took us a fair while to pluck up the courage to take down the tent and get started for the day…

We followed the stalkers path to the Southern top where we dropped our rucksacks and walked North to get to the summit of Binnein Mor. Although the weather was good, this top was covered in morning mist. We headed back down, picked up the rucksacks and then back over the Southern top and after a bit of a slog got to the summit of Na Gruagaichean to be rewarded with incredible views.

From this summit we continued on to Stob Coire a’Chairn and then on again to An Gearanach.

We descended by following the stalkers path and eventually back to Glen Nevis car park.
