Fraoch Bheinn before the mayhem! (and a mystery Corbett?)

I haven't been out much during the latest restrictions but with a great forecast this day and the impending deluge expected on the 26th it seemed like a good idea to maybe stay at home then for a few days and get out just now instead. :wink:
Brilliant blue skies early morning but clouded over later on. Four cars in the car park at 8AM. :shock:

Just a straightforward up and down Fraoch Bheinn and on to the north top shown only one way on the map.

The road in

On the hill

The road out

Just before we started out we spoke to a guy who was off to do a Corbett and he pointed at this hill on the right with the snow up top. In hindsight he must have been planning Carn Mor which is in that general direction. We thought we recognised Streap but were confused about the other Corbett, but because we didn't need the map the entire day we didn't bother looking at it. :roll: Only after checking when back home realised it was the Munro Sgurr Thuilm. I've been up both of them from Glenfinnan but this looks a great approach for Sgurr Thuilm also. :D

Sgurr Thuilm - the mystery Corbett :D
