Corryhully Horseshoe- travers of Sgurr Thuilm and Sgurr nan Coireachan.
Walked with the Lang Craigs. A very select group just Jim Ian and myself.
Long day but well worth it the weather turned out great. The dreaded midge were a pest when we got out the car close to the Glen Finnan viaduct but once we started to walk we soon got rid of them.

Did you know the Corryhully Bothy has the electric? We looked in as we saw the mains power line was passing close by but didn't really think it would have - we were amused to see it had electric lighting and a fuse box and all...

We now refer to it as 'the electric bothy'...

I had forgotten that there was an electric box in this bothy but I was walking with Ian on Saturday and he remembers it. We tried our best to get up Ben lomond via the patarmigan ridge on Saturday but close to the top we had to turn back to much snow and no visability.
