With a days annual leave on Friday 23rd March took me to Glencoe, a place i will never tire of!
There have a been a few good reports on this corbett so i will keep mine brief.

Started the walk from the Kingshouse Hotel car park at 10am.

Met a few friendly deer at the Hotel!

Headed passed the hotel and down towards part of the west highland way track.

Once on the track I turned right through the open gate and took an immediate left and headed across boggy ground in a slight easterly direction towards the Alt a Bhalaich.

great views!!


Following the Alt a Bhalaich for about just over 1.5km and then headed west north west up the huge ridge which lead straight to the summit of Beinn a Chrulaiste which a huge trig point marks the way.

Seemingly there are stunning views of the Buachaille Etive Mor from the summit unfortunately not for me today!

Headed back down the same way, down the ridge and picking up a fairly well trodden path once next to the Alt a Bhalaich, back through the boggy ground and back to the car in 2and a half hours.

A nice wee wander by your standards and a good warm up for yesterday - pity it was so hazy though as the views to Glencoe would be good from there - cheers :D

Shame about the views (or lack of) :( I'm sure it was a good pipe opener for bigger and better hills :D
