Another long hike and three more Corbetts...

Leaving from the van on a driech murky morning my spirits soon lifted when I became aware that I may be able to climb up through the cloud to the sunshine and blue skies. I ended up reversing my intended route so as I could gain height quicker to enjoy the inversion conditions. It was a long , rough day but the weather was just incredible. A fantastic day in the hills

Hi Murray
Cracking report, as always. It was great to bump into you on Druim Tarsuinn! We were on the way down and you were approaching the summit.
A truly fabulous day. :D :D

Hi Bruno, what great day that was - good to meet you too near the top. You were the first people I had seen all day and I didn't see anyone else until back in the Glen on the way home. Hope you had a great day in the hills like me :)
