Scoob had recently spotted a post on the WH discussion forum, so we had a contact for getting a boat across Loch Hourn :thumbup: What an awesome service!! Left Arnisdale at 8am and dropped off just behind the small island Eilean straight across the loch. Walked our big route to take in the Corby and Munro Top we still needed on this side (the boatman was right; it was steep!) and got picked up at 6pm at Rubha nan Tulachanan. What a cracking day! :D 8)

View of our route in the morning - great spot in Corran, we were glad to pay the £10 to overnight here

Got off the boat at the front; nice touch to have the bucket as a 'stepping stone' :)

Picking our way up the side of the burn, steep and rough in places but we mostly followed a deer track

Our first hill ahead; just to skirt round the lochan and pick our way around the rocks to get there :D

Steep but easy enough terrain; looking over to Beinn Sgritheall again

Our route ahead; still a fair way to go but not looking too daunting

Cracking view of the loch - this was just minutes before a couple of RAF jets buzzed past, looking like they were almost skimming the water

We could see a clear, crag-free line up Stob a Choire Odhair

View back down; felt a lot steeper than it looks here!

Got steeper the higher we went! Slow going up here :D

Phew! Made it; our last Munro Top in this area :)

Narrow, but good track across to the Munro

Looking back to the top Stob a Choire Odhair - steep on all sides!

Cheese! :D Ladhar Bheinn summit view with our route behind us

Heading back, we peeled off at the low point just ahead and took just as steep a line down again :D

Took a straighter line down from the bealach, heading for the bay where we'd arranged our lift back :)

Stopped the clock at the beach (Scoob was late in starting his)... then figured in the 50 mins we had left we'd walk along a bit to the start of the bay; even had time to dip my feet in the water :)

View of the Cuillins as we headed back to Arnisdale, rounding off a fantastic day :)
