Just a quick report that is more for my own notes on a triple Corbett hill day in The Cairngorms.
Sunday was all we could muster for time off this week, so a wild camp was out of the question. Decided on this Triple Corbett route that would see us walking over 40k+ for our day.
One of the few good things about this route is the bulldozed tracks; they do help to get you across the route that bit quicker!
Weather conditions were pretty good; there were a few heavy showers that seemed to pass quickly, nothing to severe. We even got a wee flutter of snow.
Not the most inspiring of routes, but at least the views of the Main Cairngorms from the Corbett Leathad an Taobhain were enough to ease the pain.

All of these are in my backyard :lol: I have never done these tops in one journey though :) In fact, if I were to be truthful, all of them were visited by using my old muddy fox for access. :wink: Taobhain was visited during a ride from the strath involving Glen Feshie, Taobhain, Minigaig, Bruar, Tilt, Geldie and back down the Feshie. Well I pushed it up what I call the Mogal field to the top of T. after the track up from Feshie ended.....after this it was a good journey on the velo.
