Great day on Beinn a' Ghlo

Route: Beinn a'Ghlo

Munros: Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain, Carn Liath (Beinn a'Ghlo), Carn nan Gabhar

Date walked: 22/02/2015

Time taken: 7.5 hours

Distance: 22km

Four of us headed up from Glasgow and started at Loch Moraig parking point. Great weather meant we had a chance to see the great views on the lower reaches of this walk. However, higher up there was a lot of fog and not much to see. The 3rd Monroe was a hard slog in the hard packed snow and long rocky walk to the summit. The walk off was substantial and makes this a long day. The day proved costly as I lost my Garmin GPSMAPS 64s when getting changed at the car park by Loch Moraig
