The start of the walk up Moruisg was a fairly unpleasant steep slog in the relentless heat but as we got higher (well almost the top) there was a slight breeze and it became bearable. We passed various snow patches in vague gully's that we passed.

On top the slog was rewarded with amazing 360 degree views. The Torridon hills to the North looked great, particularly the unusual grey bulk of Beinn Eighe. From this point the walk improved dramatically and we headed SW across a beautiful broad ridge before stopping for lunch looking into the valley's to the SE.

With the heat, being on the high ground and having the odd snow patch to cross it felt very alpine in nature, in fact it made me think that basically I don't really need to go to the alps anymore! I probably don't mean that, as the alps clearly are also amazing, but honestly when the weather is good in Scotland its as beautiful as anywhere in the world.

After lunch we dropped to a adjoining bealach and then climbed to the second peak - Sgurr nan Ceannaichean, a Munro in my book, but now down graded to a Corbet!

From the summit there were even better views of the next group of hills, in fact I think the experience was enhanced because of its 'downgrade' as the other folk we saw all day trailing us didn't 'bother' with this hill, I'm guessing because its not a Munro anymore. So we lingered up here and pretty much had it to ourselves.
An interesting descent led to a river where we stopped and paddled... before the final walk out which trails a river in newly planted native forest (lush). A very varied and interesting walk.
