Been feeling poorly all week but itching to get back on the hills. Didn't want to travel too far today. I thought of going back up Buachille etive beag then thought of this Corbett and the different view of the big Bookil.
Late start- as I slept in, so it was quarter go 9 when I left the car and headed the opposite way along the WHW for a bit.
Then it was up the boggy path for a bit- for "path" please read "a few boggy footprint holes.
Pick a point really and start heading up to be summit- great views across to Stob Dearg and the Glens and behind through Glencoe.
Up over the wee cairn on Stob Beinn a chrulaiste.
Up further and Blackwater reservoir comes into view and then the trig appears within its cairned shelter. Pottered about for 10 minutes and had a bite to eat enjoying some of the views. Felt a bit cold and thought of putting the fleece on but the gloves did the trick.
Time to head down. Thought of going over and down to the Kingshouse but just went down the way i came up.
Had to stop for a minute and look up to the Devils staircase. It was like a super highway of WHW Walkers heading up it. Wow. Never seen that many before. Obviously because I've never been there at the same location at the same
Good on them all - hope there aren't many sore feet.
Cheers to Beinn a chrulaiste
