Last munro on 14th round ? 8 Aug'09

Glenelg ferryReturn from North Uist, the weather gave hints that blue skies might appear and I'd be permitted to bag my last munros on the 14th round, all on the Cuillin Ridge. Nope, it wasn't to be ! So thoughts turned to the South Glen Shiel Ridge, but with the nose-to-tail holiday traffic cruising at 40mph, I turned off the main road and made my way to Glenelg Ferry. Beinn Sgritheall was being aimed for instead. I ran up and down it in 1hr 35mins, equalling my best previous time back in 2001, but today was in mist down to around 650m and a wind on the summit crest. I'll get these Cuillin peaks yet !
