Parked up just over the bridge at the foot of Beinn Iaruinn & Leana Mhor. Was initially going to do the Graham first but decided to head straight up the slopes of the Corbett as it didn't look too bad, steepness wise. It was however reasonably steep but height and the ridge way gained quite quickly and once on the ridge it's an easy walk to the summit and was there in 1hour 10mins after starting off. From the summit a retraced my steps back along the ridge and up to Leana Mhor and as the walk hadn't taken that long i carried on to the Sub 2k Beinn a' Mhonicag. This summit was one of the boggiest i've been on and had 2 large cairns of which i'm not sure which was the summit but they were not far apart. I took the north east ridge back down then walked along the road back to the car. This was a nice walk and not a lot of effort to climb a Corbett, a Graham and a Sub 2k.

Nice report and photos Johnny, like the way you combined the three types of hills :clap:

Not sure if you know but you have got the parallel roads of Glen Roy in 2 of your photos

Might try this sometime, will bookmark the report, cheers :D

That looks like a nice circuit . I had looked at doing Beinn Iaruinn and Carn Dearg (across the road) together but this seems a much nicer walk . Glen Roy is a fascinating place , incredible geology if you can get your head around it :D

Glen Roy is an intriguing place, I have to go back there. It's a nice route you took with a multi-score :clap: We did Beinn Iaruin on its own (descended the other side of Coire nan Eun) but it took us much longer than 1hr10 min to get to the summit. Maybe I'm not as fit as I think I am :lol: :lol: :lol:

Neat, cant be too many places you could get a triple like this in. Glen Roy is a special place isnt it, the road in certainly isnt. :shock:

Thanks, intriguing indeed but more importantly, it's very quiet. :wink:

There is a hump on the road when for a split second you cannot see the road, a weird feeling :shock:
