The Inneses via bike up the Lairig

Corbetts: Cruach Innse, Sgurr Innse

Date walked: 10/02/2019

Time taken: 6 hours

Distance: 19km

Ascent: 1066m

Lovely day here after a few days of wind and rain with storm erik. Wanted to go out on the bike and do a couple of hill, so thought these two looked a good bet. Didn't follow the WH route, as I started from the Bealach between the two hills, so I'd start and and return to the bike at the same place. As it turned out I think it was wise in another way, as I made the footprints in the snow on the way up Cruach Innse, and so I could retrace them on the way back. As usual with the snow had a hard time making out the track, which I did see at times. There was a small amount of easy scrambling on the way up Cruach Innse. The way I took up Sgurr Innse was a narrow path up the front of the hill which had a few slightly exposed drops, but I wouldn't think it was too bad. Although I can't be sure I was on the actual route to be honest.

I was hoping to be able to do Stob Ban, but the snow slowed me down as always, so just rode down to the bothy to have a look and take a few pics before heading back. Please don't use my route for navigation - I can't offer any guarantee I was actually on the right track all the time!
