For the past few days I have been in Torridon with the Falkirk High Tops Team. On friday we had a nice day out on Beinn Alligin going from east to west begining with the Horns. I think this is the most pleasant way to do this route.

Yesterday, we climbed the Northern Pinnacles of Liathach. We approached via Coire Na Caime. I would not recommend this approach. The slope to gain the Pinnacles is serious. The Pinnacles also require care.

Today, we had a great day out at Diabaig. We did the Grade 3 scramble on Meall Ceann na Creige. To gain the base of the scramble we took a sea level traversing option which gave some lovely scrambling and a short section of severe rock climbing.
