Beinn Each - and a short rant

Corbetts: Beinn Each

Date walked: 30/09/2023

Distance: 7km

Ascent: 693m

Fairly close to home so an option for a shorter day. Good parking in the lay-by at Ardchullarie Burn on the east side of Loch Lubnaig but I expect that gets really busy on a good weather weekend. Dry but with fairly low cloud all day so sadly missed the views as seen in other WH reports. Even so the hill itself is great, lots of interest - higher up there are small rocky sections, dips and bumps, a couple of tiny lochans - and mountain goats. It was cool on the summit, cloud swirling over, quite atmospheric.

Best subject for a photo that day - too much cloud although frustratingly (as always) it cleared a bit as I went down.

I removed some litter on the way down - fresh bright orange peel (easy peeler by the size of it), a real eyesore, as was a chocolate bar wrapper. Sad to think these had been dropped by some of the nice people I chatted to on the footpath.
Orange peel may be biodegradable but not in our climate and not with our native British worms and insects. Oranges are not native here and may take up to two years to fully decompose - please just take it away!
Rant over - but please think again before discarding 'biodegradable material' anywhere.
