Bikes were a good idea and took around 90 minutes off our day

Another wild and windy forecast today, however the need to burn off all the mince pies meant we set out to complete a round of Sgurr nan Coireachan and Sgurr Thuilm at Glenfinnan. We (thankfully) used the bikes to get us up to the Corryhully bothy before striking out onto the shoulder of Sgurr nan Coireachan and completing the horseshoe in a clockwise direction. This ensured we had the wind to our backs most of the day meaning a slightly less burning face as I currently write this blog. There was allot of fresh snow above 900m and the rocks were beginning to get white again after the thaw yesterday. Above 850m the wind felt a steady 50mph with some pretty stern gusts on the summits, at least the temperature has dropped again and will continue to stay cold for a few days. We spoke with just one other group who looked to be having a good time even though they retreated from Sgurr Thuilm due to high winds.
