After some wintry days we planned on heading to Glencoe to try and get a route done, however it was back to black on the day we went up – ho hum 

So we set off from Altnafeadh with a forecast that suggested a claggy day! For the first time in about 15 years we ascended the mountain via Coire na Tulaich and were pleasantly surprised by some warm sunshine and low winds as we reached the bealach Taking time to enjoy the views we sat in the sun at spot 902m before deciding to head west to the minor tops between the two Munros. The weather was lovely with low cloud just rolling about the glen. The ascent to Ston na Doire was a delight with the morning sun breaking through the mists and some lingering snow patches providing a nice touch. Another lengthy break was enjoyed as we soaked in the views – Bidean poking its head out from time to time and the hills of Glencoe were looking fine.
Unfortunately the forecasted weather arrived as we headed for Stob Coire Altruim so once we reached its summit we decided to head back down into the Lairig Gartain and enjoyed a lovely stroll back to Altnfeadh – no routes and no Munros but a fine outing in Glencoe was had 
