Meall an t-Slamain - It has it's ups and downs.

$matches[2] With the easing of lockdown regulations, it was great to get away from the local area and explore further afield again. I'd gone to conquer Meall an t-Slamain in the past, but some un-forecasted rain had happened along and I changed my plans as I wanted to experience the view. We arrive...

Mona Gowan (the lazy way)

our_route.gpx My original plan was to climb both Mona Gowan and Morven from further down the road, but the Obergruppenf├╝hrer arranged an evening out at short notice and I thought I better not turn up needing a double hip replacement, Plan B was quickly put into action and I realised that it would b...
