Ach ca' rathad a'suas .... which way up?
I chose the tourist route from Gleann Lochaidh rather than a longish cycle/walk up Gleann Conanais and a snowy streap up the NE druim .
By christ the Lochaidh was cold to wade through in my bare cás, felt like my toes was gonna fall off by the time i hit the other bank
A fresh snowfall in the Spruce and bright sunshine made it feel like the Alps
Anns a Coire bha an sneachd boideachadh agus bha Beinn Laoigh ...uill bréagha
We soon made the Bealach the weather was stunning indeed and i made a quick shift up Beinn A'Chleibh a nice wee hill with good views all round
The call of Laoigh was strong though and we did nt hang around for long before we started off up the sleibhte ...deep snow here ,soft n fresh
It was hard going although we were soon air a mhullach and the sealltainn ?
Fuireachibh an uair air a mhullach a suidhe ..... we spent an hour on the summit taking the views which were breagha gu dearbh
Uill bha sin e ...sunburst n snowblind and what a day to be in Earra Ghaidheil
What a craicing day to be blessed with just stunning you cannot match the Gaidhealtachd in these conditions.I could see from An t Eilean Sgiathnach to Linnhe Cluaidh and it was a chore to tear ourselves off the summit
How lucky is it to have this on the doorstep
I would say that the tourist route up Laoigh has its points however next time im up from Cononish ,shes a belter of a hill and as for the day we got
Mol an latha math mu oidhche

We went up the Cononish way - no way I fancy fording the cold river - too much like my feet to be warm. I'll have to man up if I'm going to do some of the more northern hills, thinking particularly of Fisherfield and the Deargs. Anyhoo, your pictures are fabulous, jealous as anything!!
haha dont b jealous now ...get yout tón out and up those Northerners
