Next day was south to the Bealach Udal on the Kylerhea road to climb three Grahams from a starting height of 280m!
From the bealach it was a bit of a trudge over wet ground to the lochan which marks the start of Sgurr na Coinnich's summit ridge, and on to the summit cairn. A strong, icy wind was blowing so we didn't linger to enjoy the views, instead descending immediately to the col to start our climb up the formidable looking Beinn na Caillich. A stiff climb on steep ground took us to the summit cairn, then it was back over the shoulder of Sgurr na Coinnich and down to the bealach for lunch.
Ben Aslak, the third of our hills, only just makes Graham status so it was a pleasant and gradual climb to the summit where once again we enjoyed fantastic views.
With a bitter wind still blowing hard we made our descent and headed for the coffee shop in Broadford for a well earned bowl of soup.
