Route description: Ben Donich, via Rest and Be Thankful
Corbetts included on this walk: Ben Donich
Date walked: 09/04/2011
Time taken: 4.5 hours
Distance: 7 kmRegister or Login free to be able to rate and comment on reports (as well as access 1:25000 mapping).
weather was fine and arrived at the car park about 1ish.
Being new and all, there won't be any named descriptions of what we're seeing.
the next day we took a wee run up to Glencoe
Job done! Magic.
Your picture of the Cobbler? The cobbler is the peak on the far right. The peak to the right of middle is the munro Beinn narnain. The peak to the far left at the back is the Munro Beinn Ime and the smaller peak in front of that is the Corbett Beinn Luibhean
Just for interest you climbed approx 550m in ascent during this walk. The small Beauchaille walk climbs an additional 350m in ascent for only another 1/2 a mile so its steeper.
Look forward to your next report.

Get out and find where you're at.
You've done a hill I haven't

our fitness isn't great - but all that really meant was we had to stop quite often for 10 secs to get our breath back but i could've walked forever given the views and the sense of exhilaration.
and honestly we were seriously p*ssing ourselves when we got to Glencoe and saw what could have been, or what wouldn't have been given your info monty, on that mountain.
fun, fun, fun on the hills.

Well done, good report and photo's.......we were all new to this hill walking thing at one point, and most of them can deceive....you see a ridge struggle up to it and find there's an even bigger one behind to negotiate, and then same again, but as has been mentioned....hope to see many more reports.
