Easy Addition To Croaghgorm
by Aidy  4 Nov 2016
A very wet day, and it was only as I reached summit of the South West Top that the cloud which had enveloped me all the way up and over Croaghgorm, lifted. The sky remained angry looking, but light broke through patches to light up the landscape and make my efforts seem worthwhile. Probably best done, as I did, along with Croaghgorm and some of the other subsidiary tops, and once you've done Croaghgorm, it takes very little effort to reach this top.
