Friday, 26th. October, 2007
This was the fifth day that Toddy and I had been out on a lonely circuit of the lower half of Glen Lyon and the weather could not have been less obliging. After traversing Meall nan Tarmachan from west to east on the previous day, we had descended past the northern end of Lochan na Lairige before heading up to camp at about 750m on the burn descending north north west from Meall Corranaich. We passed a reasonable night of intermittent showers and wind before heading off on the final day of the trip at a relatively early hour.

Our first top was Meall a'Choire Leith - an easy stroll to the north in encouraging weather - but, when we turned south to tackle the rest of the Lawyers Range, poor weather had arrived for the duration. We spent the rest of the day battling over clagged in tops in heavy rain with the only memories of note being a bit of a struggle to find the best route up Beinn Ghlas from the bealach to the north west, an unexpectedly steep descent off An Stuc and an interminably wet plod off Meall Greigh to Fortingall where we enjoyed a convivial pint in front of a warm fire at the hotel before heading off south in our respective cars. It had been good to get away and onto the hills for a few hard days.
