Mamores ridge walk
Coire an Lochain, Sgor Eilde Beag, Both Na Gruagaichean Tops

Second Day with Clients
Two days before I had walked Stob Coire nan Lochan and Bidean nam Bian (view blog) with the clients so I knew their fitness level and experience

This walks goes into the remote Mamores. Coire an Lochain nestled below Sgurr Eilde Mor allows you to be in a place that has views to Glen Coe in one direction and the Grey Corries looking the other way. Although you are at 720m with great views, Sgurr Eilde Mor and Sgor Eilde Beag tower above you
