First walk report from a few weeks ago. Good views from these Munros over to the snow covered higher Lawers hills.


Meall a'Choire Leith, Meall Corranaich - the last two hills in the Ben Lawers group. Arrived after 10am and was surprised to find there were no others cars at the wee car park at base of walk.

Easy enough start but going was very boggy :( Nice views over to Meall nan Tarmachan.

Path clear ahead over to Meall a'Choire Leith avoiding the wrong spur which one man and his dog appeared to take though did not seem to slow them down much!
