Monamenach - an easy local corbett

Route: Monamenach, Glen Isla

Corbetts: Monamenach

Date walked: 11/04/2019

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 5.25km

There are other things I should be doing, you know things like tidying up...the forecast wasn't looking great for today originally so I figured it would be today but it turned out to be another nice day so we picked another hill to climb, Monamenach a Corbett and fairly local so easy enough to get to.

Monamenach in the distance and the track up to it just visible.

Car parking spot just before the bridge.

There was one other car parked up on a small grassy bit near the bridge and we parked alongside them following the road back and across the cattlegrid to Tulchan Lodge. Though a gate alongside another cattle grid and immediately leaving the road to follow a grassy track uphill which soon becomes a more stony track. It isn't a complicated walk, the track forks a bit beyond an old fence line and the right fork is taken and that track leads all the way to the summit. Dogs stopped for a bit of ice on the one snow patch we came across, used the having Coinneach attached to Moss to get some summit photos (need to work on his stays!) and then headed back down again. The views weren't that great as it was a bit hazy, darker clouds moving towards us on our descent but they stayed away.

Slushy time!

At the summit

The river runs right next to the car parking bit and the dogs got a bit of a splash around in the water before we headed along to the Glen Isla Hotel for a cup of tea and a snack.
