It took a wee bit of planning and consideration did old Beinn Heasgarnich, more than usual for me. Due in main to the mixed stories I have been told, the warnings of awkward bog zones, the effort required to cover the distances and terrain when including its neighbour. I went for the single munro wishing to focus on the enjoyment of the hill spending time on mainly south facing slopes on a short January day, and the inclusion of our bikes enabled an opportunity to be safe back in the carpark with time to relax, visit the pub in Killin and be back home to enjoy a Saturday evening by the fireside

Can't believe it's 10 years since I went up this and Creag Mhor. Similar snow but very little of the sunshine and views that you had.

I loved this magnificent hill and Creag Mhor, we had a cracking day.
Its just those drama queens who give these hills a bad name!!!

pigeon - we enjoyed BH very much as well, and a small refreshment certainly was had
L-hiking - this route and conditions did not let down on the day with a lovely approach too (one or two gates to negotiate, but most with walkers' gate too)
Collaciotach - Creag Mhor awaits another exhilerating winters day perhaps?
Morecambe Monkey - patience is a virtue and we were rewarded, Cheers Pat
lomondwalkers - I hope you are graced with a similar day
gammy leg walker - Cheers gammy
jonny616 - Sgiath Chuil and Meall Glas would have been great in these conditions too, cheers Jonny
malky_c - many thanks, and here's to you receiving the views on your next visit to BH
polly33 - Cheers polly, sure was a cracker
mountainlove - I hope you do get out again soon, and goodluck getting a suitable bike rack, rails or carrier for your car
mrs santa - Here's to you enjoying as fine a day too
scottishkennyg - thanks very much, it was a great day on Beinn Heasgarnich
