Walked in from Corrie Hallie and arrived at Shenavall bothy around 10pm ish on the Friday evening. Arrived with our head torches burning to a relatively busy bothy.
We slept well in the back room, and come 7.30am we had left the bothy to start our circuit. Took us over an hour to cross the river from the Bothy, had to strip off and foot up with my trust trainers for crossing, but at least our feet would be dry for the start of our big day..
We headed straight up the NNE of the Corbett for some light scrambling, tricky in bits but quite manageable for us old timers.
Next few hours were a bit of a blurr, poor visibility wind and rain. Wasn’t until we reached A Mhaighdean that we saw some improvement in the weather, and come this time all we were concerned about was getting back to bothy before darkness fell.
With all the rain that fell throughout the day we knew that the final river crossings would be problematic. We dealt with that problem swiftly by running across both.
We spent our second evening at the bothy before leaving at 7.30ish to head for Corrie Hallie and our awaiting van.
