Whilst the warm and dry weather has been nice, I've been sleeping badly and waking early unable to get back to sleep. Unsurprisingly I've been feeling tired and not fired up for a walk. Thinking about a photography trip instead I latched on to the idea of going over the Bealach na Ba to Applecross and wandering off to the easy Corbett of Sgurr a' Chaorachain.

Sgurr a Chaorachain from the Bealach na Ba

It was a straightforward out-and-back walk. Follow the track to the mast on North Top and continue around the cliffs above Coire a' Chaorachain to the true summit. We only saw 2 people with a wee terrier on the way back. The famed fantastic views were rather hazy but the cliffs were pretty good.
