Beinn Chabhair

Parked in the Drovers Inn car park and started walking at 8.30am in bright sunshine, weatherman says rain by mid afternoon. Walked along to Beinn Glas Farm where behind the wooden pods climb the small stile at the stone dyke then head up the obvious path, keep the Ben Glas Burn on your right climb over the large stile and continue up always following the burn. Eventually it levels out above the waterfall and the going gets easier. I followed this right up to the Lochan Beinn Chabhair and although it is fairly level it is also rather boggy especially after the recent rains. Of course I felt my new Gaiters had to be tested and stepped right up to my shins in bog yeugh it doesn't have stink but the gaiters worked well, thanks Mr Rab. From the west side of the Lochan continue North East to gain the North west ridge of Beinn Chabhair. then it's along the ridge to the cairn which marks the summit. By the time I reached the summit the clag had set in and it wasn't long before the rain started and didn't stop.

Really enjoyed the walk and if i'm honest the solitute as I usually walk with a friend. I arrived back at the car soaking wet (on the outside) but wearing a huge smile of contentment.
