On Easter Monday I had planned my long expected trip to Corrour. In Crianlarich I took de Caledonian Sleeper. The view from the train was a delight. There was snow everywhere and the sun was shining. My day was made. In Corrour I followed the landrover track until Peter’s rock. From thereon I walked up hill and reached the Carn Dearg and a bit later the summit of Sgor Gaibhre. On my return I took the same way back to the Station House. A well-deserved dinner and a bottle of Irn Bru were inescapable. What a day and such memories!

Thanks James & Petr. Fortunately we don’t have to wait until summer. Next Tuesday we’ll be coming your way. We, my youngest daughter and I, are going to walk near Glen Shiel, Dornie, Broadford, Armadale and Fort William. Cheers, Peter :D
