You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why…..
Mountain Thyme is watching you frown
She’s making a list
Ticking it twice
Going find out how many Johnny Corbetts done to be precise….
Well this wee corbett today took me to my 50th corbett! So watch out Johnny Boy here I come
Today seen me walking with the Glasgow Walking and Hillwalking Club and climbing Beinn Stacath.
Started the walk from Ballinmore where there is room for at least 7 cars.
Headed back up the road passing two locked gates on the left and took the track up to the left of the first house. Climbed over the gate signposted Private Deer Park and headed along the track.
At the farm building headed over the bridge and west up the hill.
It was pouring with rain and winds of up to 65mph for the majority of the walk.
Cloud level was at approx 500m and navigation was difficult.
We headed in a south westerly direction up to the wee rise at 684 and then continued west up to the summit of Beinn Stacath. The climb was extremely easy all the way but being with a group we had many many stops.
We posed for a quick summit picture at the trig point and then dropped down out of the wind for lunch.
We continued north down towards Ceann na Baintighearna and then east following the fenceposts along the ridge.
The plan was to head to Creag Mhor and down the ridge back to Ballinmore.
However a decision was made to drop south down through the crags before the Bealach Driseach and down to the Allt Fathan Glinne River.
On reaching the river we followed it back to the farm building and along the track back to Ballinmore.
Back to the car in 6hours 20minutes and soaked to the skin

If you're no.1 guide was there he would have taken you along by the river to avoid the deer PS I did 2 Corbetts yesterday so thats another 1 you're lagging behind by
