Five hardy souls braved the inclement weather forecast and the long journey to travel to Fidden Farm camp site on the Isle of Mull. Perched on the beach and overlooking Iona, this must rank as one of the best camping spots in the Highlands.
All five IMC members – Dougie, Michael, Nell, Miha and Kevin – summited Ben More over the weekend on two separate days but all failed to get any views, as the low cloud, rain and wind produced typical Scottish summer weather.
An attempt was made on the Corbett Dun da Ghaoithe by one member of the party, but they missed the summit by 1 km in the bad weather only finding out on their return when they downloaded their GPS data. They shall remain nameless to hide their blushes!
The only decent weather of the weekend was on the Sunday afternoon, when an enjoyable trip to Iona was made to see the abbey and the burial place of the Scottish kings. Kevin also managed to fire up his barbie on Saturday evening, so the weather wasn’t a complete disaster. We’ll be back to Mull and Fidden Farm another year … fingers crossed for better weather.
