Hills completed
Sgor Gaoith, Beinn Bhrotain, Monadh Mor and Mullach Clach a Bhlair

We came up to Glenfeshie several weeks ago hoping for a good days hiking. Unfortunately we left with nothing due to the adverse weather conditions. Later that day however we did manage to conquer the Corbett Geall Charn Mor.
On our return to Glenfeshie Sat 21/3/2015 things were to be very different. Sgor Gaoith and possibly Mullach Clach a Bhlair were on the cards, but if weather was favourable, we were hopeful or optimistic that Beinn Bhrotain and Mullach Clach a Bhlair may be within our reach.
Weather was favourable, weather was supreme winter conditions. And luckily for us the Quartet was achieved making for a long day in the hills.
Small word of caution regarding parking. We parked approx. 1.2km north of the cattle grid that is located approx. 1km NNW of the designated parking area near Auchlean. This mistake earned us an extra 5km in our hiking boots!
