128. Fionn Bheinn (246). 03/04/2011

With the adventures of the previous days behind us and the weather due to be a bit better, we were definitely up for half a day of walking. For this we chose the world-famous Achnasheen, which provided a relatively short munro (but one not lacking in character).

Arriving at midday, the ubiquitous morning drizzle had just abated and we sped up the start of the climb at almost a jog (compared to the previous day at least). The wind (still at gale force) was at our back most of the way up to encourage us, so it was less than 2h to get to the summit. We then had to sit down to avoid being blown off the steep north face, but took a moment to relax and ponder over the hills that would have made up our original tour itinerary.

For a way of descent, we then went to the east top, which took us onto gentle grassy slopes back down to the village. All in all a much more tame excursion than the camping, but still enjoyable because of this.
