Finding our way round the 'Old Woman'

A day out looking at navigation and other general hill skills with the 2nd years today. With a couple of the group feeling a bit rough with a flu that is going round we opted for a lower summit. We headed just North of Kinlochleven and made an ascent of Beinn na Caillich ( 'Hill of the old woman', I found out today) and descended the Northern slopes to meet the West Highland Way and a nice easy walk back to the van.  A nice DRY day after the weekends weather and the guys did well despite not feeling too hot and their skills are coming on.
Looking south to an atmospheric Aonach Eagach.
