Fara day

Corbetts: The Fara

Date walked: 12/08/2018

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 15km

Ascent: 800m

A really enjoyable walk with good views. Note, parking at the level crossing isn't possible as the lane leading there is signed as resident parking only but there is plenty of space at the old tea room round the corner.

A few steepish spots on the way up to the highest and most northerly top/bump which had me stopping occasionally to catch breath but a very pleasant and undemanding stroll to the other end of the ridge.

Doubled back most of the way along the ridge then cut diagonally down to the fire break to try to make a short cut but not sure if it was worth it as the ground that way was a bit rougher.

Towards Ben Alder, not that I have ever been there but looks quite grand.

A distant Aonach Eagach I think.

Occasional small crags make thing look more, well, craggy.
