After a long few days kayaking into climb Ladhar Bheinn, I decided to leave the car at Kinlochhourn and head up Buidhe Bheinn. The forecast was not so good for the day ahead but to be honest, when I left the car things weren't too bad. There was a stiff breeze as I made my way up the hill but no rain had arrived.

Video of adventure :


The hills here are rough and rugged and for me the best feature of this hill were the views back out to Ladhar Bheinn and down Loch Hourn - worth the visit alone.

The first summit was reached in the dry but there is an out and back to gain the main summit of the mountain and as I reached the top, the grey clouds opened up and the rain was on. A rather soggy descent saw me back at the car drenched and packing away ready for a wild camp the next day....

Excellent report, as ever. A lot of people must have completed the Corbetts on this one, since it was only remeasured and the decision made to strip it of its double header status, and make it a Corbett in its own right ten years ago when I completed on the Innses. I knew the results of the survey would be out soon, so went and bagged this one just in case the coin toss came down in its favour, which it did (we had anyway done the other end). So am never sure whether I finished on Sgurr Innse or this. We had a bit of a struggle having done the Innses the previous day, and unlike your day, ours was boiling hot.
