Hill: Meall an Fhudair
Date: Friday 19th February 2010
Company: Foggieclimber, Jim and Beinn
Dog friendly: Yes


We parked opposite Glen falloch farm, set off up the landrover track, crossed a bridge over the railway line, and then zig-zagged up the track to a junction of tracks just beyond the pylons.

On reaching the junction of paths we took to the grassy lower slopes of Troisgeach. The initial ascent was reasonably steep but it eased off a bit after ascending around 100m. No snow on the lower slopes.

Start of ascent of Troisgeach:

Lots of small knolls during the ascent of Troisgeach. Just a case of picking a line through them.

Was a bit surprised at the lack of snow during the ascent, especially compared with hills further North. It wouldn't be long though before we had plenty of snow to traverse.

Most of the hard leg-work is done on reaching the summit of Troisgeach. However, there is still a fair way to go to then reach Meall nan Caora and then Meall an Fhudair.

The snow was near perfect for walking on.
I thoroughly enjoyed the walk between the tops. :D
