Today was promised by the weathermen to be the best day of the weekend so without hesitation this was to be the day we did two if not three Arran Corbetts. We parked the car on the Glen Rosa road opposite the camping site where there is enough space for three or four cars.

Looking up Glen Rosa from a wee resting place, soon after passing this you cross a burn then turn and walk up alongside the burn on the far side
