Geal Charn (Glen Markie)

Route: Geal Charn, Monadhliath

Munros: Geal Charn (Monadhliath)

Date walked: 23/04/2018

The westernmost of the Monadh Liath Munros was a good target for day of mixed weather. As usual, the drive along Loch Laggan had some fine scenes.

The path to Geal Charn gave us nice views of the Feith Talagain stream.

Soon a stream, and the path, branched off uphill, giving us a distant glimpse of this nice waterfall on the Feith Talagain.

Looking back to the last pines of the valley.

Stones for a sit down are rare on the lower parts of this walk!

The view back down to the valley from the south ridge of Geal Charn.

Soon after that, we entered the clouds, but the path could be followed all the way to the grandly built cairn.

A shower hit us just after that photo was taken, and we thought this might be the start of the forecast bad weather for the afternoon.

But in fact it soon cleared, and on the descent we had more views of the valley. Altogether not a bad day considering the weather forecast!

Gear: Paramo jacket
Ideal day out: A autumn or spring walk starting in woodland, going into the hills to find unexpected places, hidden corries and lochans, maybe a spot of scrambling, a sighting of some wildlife, some snow on the tops and a view over the Hebrides, and finishing with pint or more...
Ambition: I've done it!
