despite varying weather reports i decided a trip to Glencoe for a night in the clachaig and to do the Bauchaille Etive Mor qwhich id wanted to do since first setting eyes on it a couple of years ago as the wife was off work on the Sunday she wanted to see why the clachaig was my fav pub,so after a good night and bad morning :roll: the clachaig has a new fan club member, we then drove to the top of the Glen from the car park i headed into Coire na Tulaich on the west side of the burn.
The view back down the coire
as i approached the final steep ramp to the bealach i crossed the burn to scramble up the Bealach
Stob na Doire from the bealach
from here i headed east and the summit is soon reached
Rannoch Moor
yours truley on the summit
My mate Charlie enjoying the views
i then retraced my syeps back to the bealach and headed south west over Stob na Doire which i think should be a munro when i look at others that are munros rant over :lol:
view to Stob na Broige
as i crossed the ridge towards Stob na Broige Mr Clagg moved in :(
Stob na Broige summit
i then retracedmy steps back along the ridge over Stob Coire Altruim and down into Lairig Gartain
as i returned to the car park no wife an no car and her mobile now out of charge great so i thought ill start walking down the A82 as she would be along to pick me up anytime wrong :roll: 6 miles later after a death walk along the top part of the A82 i found her having a nice chat and several wines she just smiled and said oh your back where you been :crazy: note to self take car keys with me next time :lol:
