We did this walk in reverse order to the guide (accidentally, thanks to following signs rather than maps), so it started out really simple and easy (except for the raining on us part). Fortunately it had stopped raining by the time we got to the boggy part:
And the narrow path above the twenty metre drop to the loch.
As you can see, it was also very lovely - though balancing on rocks for a large portion of the return leg left us thoroughly tired.
