This weekend we took a walk up Coire Gabhail, The Hidden Valley in Glencoe (sometimes called the lost valley). As the weather was so good for November we decided to walk up the Munros Stob Coire Sgreamhach and Bidean Nam Bian. This has to be one of my best hill days ever with perfect weather and some of the most amazing views in Scotland with the Mamores and Ben Nevis giving superb views.

Reaching the Lost valley itself will take around 45mins - 60 mins. The entire loop (with lots of filming, eating and watching the views) was 16km with 1400m of ascent and took just over 7 hours.
