Following a great day on the Cobbler and one of its satellites, Beinn Narnain, Dad and I headed for Glencoe and the mighty Bookle. Setting off from the layby at 10am, it was clear that it was going to be a scorcher…

Image

Setting off, we crossed the river, followed the track past the Lagangarbh hut and made our way up the steep eroded path into Coire na Tulaich.

It was hot work; Dad here turning his trousers into shorts

And me standing in the way of it

After scrambling around on loose scree, we finally made the summit ridge, taking in views across Rannoch Moor that aren’t seen too often…
Image

The first summit reached, we were treated to fabulous views

Wow…

The Aonach Eagach…I will get across this one day!

After soaking up the views, we started to make our way along the long ridge. Looking back was incredible

The target…

Looking back

The wee bookle and Bidean

Standing on Stob na Broige, summit number two and looking back at the whole ridge…
Image

As we were in Scotland and therefore expecting it to rain, we had no suncream. To avoid becoming any more lobsterfied, we started to head down. It was a long way back afterall!

Looking back at where we’d been
Image

Really wanted to jump into this burn
Image

Back at the car. What a day – scorchio!
