Last Wednesday, I have hiked my first Munro. After a lot of mountains hiked in the French Alps, it was my first time of hiking in the Highlands.
I have started the hike at Inveray. Direction South, I have followed the Glen Ey until Auchelie. At this point (some houses in ruins) I have turned right (Direction West) to hike the Carn nan Seileach by following the all-terrain vehicules track. At the end of the track, I have continued South to join the summit of the Carn Creagach (894 meters high).
One this summit reached I have continued in the West direction to join the pass which link the Carn Creagach and the Carn Bhac. Once this pass joined I had to stop for half an hour because of a heavy snow shower. Then I have hiked the Carn Bhac until the summit (946 meters high) There was an really high speed wind on the summit and it was really cold. I had to leave quickly because of the low temperature.
For my way down I have followed some little paths to the South to reach the valley between the Carn Creagach and the Carn Cruinn. Once the ruins of Altanour Lodge reached, I have followed the Ey Burn until Inverey.
