Cheers! Yes, it was a pleasure to meet you - you'd obviously had a more ambitious day; was it the traverse from Tulloch Station over Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg :? ?

Not that ambitious!
We just did the circuit round the lake - Carn Dearg, Sgorr Gaibhre, and Ben Na Lap...
It was a beautiful day and one I won't forget in a hurry.

I was also up there on Friday , was considering adding on the corbett , but it would have been tight for train times ,and since it was such a lovely day , I decided to take it easy, do the one hill and enjoy the day ..... ps , I told you on the train journey up Kaye ...... its a loch , not a lake :wink:

Ha ha Ceaser....of course it's a loch :lol:

I am originally from Aberdeen, but I've clearly been out of the country for far too long!!

That Corbett would be worth a trip in its own right anyway.....plus a LOCH swim maybe - up to the lodge and back shouldn't take too long...

Good luck with the final 14

Nice on Kenny
great report and pics on a hill that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Did this on a walk through from Fort Bill to Laggan, and this brings back a great memory
