Zena bagged her last Angus Corbett - Ben Tirran - today, it has been neglected for sometime despite being a local hill and a quick one to do! Just a repeat for me and Moss. There was space for parking by the gate at Weem and a clear track for the first part of the ascent up towards Loch Wirrel, a narrower path forking off at a cairn to head up the slopes which remains clear until shortly after passing some boulders where we saw several hares. With clear visibility it is just a case of continuing uphill and looking for a marker cairn, from there another clear path is reached which leads all the way to the summit. Descent was the same way.

Beware of colliediles when crossing the ford!

Hare today, gone just moments later!

Dog is broken...
