2nd reports in a today, I must be bored! :lol:
Having been up later than we wanted because Chelsea couldn't beat the Germans in normal time coupled with the fact we both had quite a large family do yesterday we were quite tired on this one. When I looked up and saw that bloody gorge we were going up, I nearly about turned but it was a long drive home so might as well do it now I'm hear.

Impressive view as we turned the corner into Glencoe

We met a couple of climbers who were going up Crowberry Tower and were urging us to go up Curved Ridge...............not today boys..........or any other for that matter! They were nice guys and wished us an enjoyable day before saying they'd be at the top before us :) Anyway two words guys if you ever read this..................we won! :lol:

Nice report Stuart and really like the photos.

Not surprised you beat those guys to the top, 6 hours round trip, that's pretty impressive.
I didn't realise there was still that much snow left around the Glencoe area.

Thanks skuk, we hit it off with the weather that day, it was perfect for walking in. All that snow had gone by last weekend though, the 5 days of Scottish summer put pay to that, now we've got 3 months of rain and bad weather to look forward to knowing Scotland's climate!!! :lol:
