Route description: Creag Meagaidh circuit
Munros included on this walk: Carn Liath (Creag Meagaidh), Creag Meagaidh, Stob Poite Coire Ardair
Date walked: 15/09/2011Register or Login free to be able to rate and comment on reports (as well as access 1:25000 mapping).
We arrived at Aberarder full of high spirits. We had all agreed to do Creag Meagaidh first and descend from Cairn Liath.
The blue sky was something we hadn't seen for ages and was much appreciated.
We walked up the path in anticipation of what lay ahead.
Lunch was had by the Lochan before the steep climb into the window.
You could definately tell that the crags were suitable for climbing when iced up.
After a lunch we were ready for a steep climb.
It was a welcome relief to get to the top.
There are worn paths around the back of the window.
We set off up Creag Meagaidh & I warned my friends about Mad Megs Cairn which we visited after the summit.

It was far too nice to go down and we had intended from the offset to complete the circuit.
Once we got up to our second munro fence posts appeared - and the boys disappeared!
Peek a boo!
After a good high level walk with one or two noticeable dips we arrived at Cairn Liath.
We descended and eventually found the path. It was boggy in places due to copious amounts of rain during the previous days. The trees proved to be quite dense.
I didn't spot the little path on our way up as it was overgrown with bracken. I removed a little from around the cairn to make it visible.
We descended down as the sun was setting.

That's a great shot of the lochan and cliffs. Glad you got a good day for it after the weather we've had.

Glad to see there is a cairn marking the start of the path incase anyone does this in an anticlockwise direction.
