A walk around Sgairneach Mhor and Beinn Udlamain in the heat.
Cairngorm summit, early yesterday. I’d have stopped for lunch if it wasn’t for the following reasons:
The wind was gusting at about 50mph.
The temperature/windchill was around -5C.
The views were non existent.
It was only 10am…
Since Rock Ness was cancelled this year, we decided to hold our own in beautiful Glen Isla. And while we were down there, we climbed Monamenach and Glas Maol.
A fairly easy and very picturesque ascent through Corrie Fee leads to the plateau and two Munros, Mayar and Driesh, with the descent on a good path back through Glendoll forest at the head of Glen Clova. A lovely days walking with only a minor “tumble” by yours truly…..Kirsty’s first two Munros!
