Glencoe 17/18th October Meet Report

11 people travelled to Glencoe independent Hostel on Friday.

Mel and Michael G managed to get away early to climb Sgorr Dhonuill (of Beinn a’Bhethir). We left the carpark at South Ballachulish at 14.30 and took the tracks and well made path into the bealach between the 2 summits. Luckily the weather was better than expected (less windy) and so we arrived on the summit by 5pm with great views!

Peter and Marion, Helen, Carol and Richard H were already settled in when we arrived. Jenny C and 2 friends from Edinburgh (Candice and Anthony) and Annie arrived later.

Day Meet Report- Beinn Liath Mhor and Sgorr Ruadh

5 people (Michael G, Gina, Alan, Mel and new member Allan) met at the car-park at 8 (ish- Mel was late…) and piled into Alan and Gina’s car.

Our walk started from a midgey car-park at Achnashellach station, through the trees, until the path opened up beneath Fuar Tholl. We were treated to an amazing rainbow when approaching Coire Lair. A well made stalkers path took us up the start of the ascent of Sgorr Ruadh, leaving the path to move up rocky and grassy slopes above the crags to the summit cairn. The shifting weather gave an interesting atmosphere to the views! Read more
