SMC Naismith Hut, Elphin8th- 10thSeptember 2017 (3 nights)

Eight members attended at an excellent hut, which has very scenic views of Silvan.

Weather for Saturday was mixed with low clag at first clearing to misty rain with heavier rain at the summits, very wet ground conditions making descents tricky to avoid slipping.

Gordon & Fiona drove to Culnacraig near Achiltbuie and climbed Ben More Coigach summiting Sgurr an Fhidleir plus two other tops.

Ian & Colin decided to walk from the hut to Canisp and back.

Len, Frank, Stuart & John drove up to a parking place near Achfary and climbed a very wet underfoot Ben Stack.

Friday and Saturday night were spent in the hut and after mealtimes both were completed with good chats and a tipple or two.

On Sunday due to the poor weather on Saturday and a really bad forecast of windy and very wet conditions we all decided to return home early.

Many thanks to all for another successful KMC weekend and thanks to John for organising.
