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.
