Torridon or An Teallach

Torridon or An Teallach

Postby madrock289 » Wed Jul 20, 2011 1:30 pm

Well i'm almost there. Its taken a whle (17 years) but 'm fast approaching the end of a long trip. I need to make a decision on where to finish. Either an epic few days sprinting round the hills of Torridon or a semi relaxing plod round An Teallach. What shoud I do. Send your answers on an SAE to the usual address ha ha ha!!

You must have started about the same time as me, back in 1994, and seeing as we're within 3 of each other, we must be going at roughly the same pace :D

An Teallach would be a great one (two) to finish on, providing you get the weather, as it's a brilliant walk. Are you hoping to drag a few 'not particularly into tricky ridges' friends up to your final Munro? In which case Fionn Bheinn is very straightforward and would be easy enough for people who are not particularly experienced. Whichever you choose though, enjoy the day 8)

I see you haven't done Lurg Mor? I'm tempted to say that - then you'll find out who your real friends are :lol:

Very difficult to pick between An Teallach and Torridon as they are pretty similar.

:shock: I'm amazed how localised your remaining Munros (and Corbetts) are. :shock:

Some of the best hills in Scotland there. Just roll some dice. ;)

Oh, my, what a difficult choice. :?

I suppose alot may depend on who you intend going up the hill with (if anyone), as Red Peak mentioned. You want everyone to get to the summit.

They both have accommodation handy and a pub nearby so no decisions to be made on that score.

Torridon is my favourite place so my choice would be biased.

Good luck and enjoy, whatever you decide.
