Summer 2017 Meet - Corran

28 July 2017

Fifteen people plus one dog attended the July meet at Corran. The Corran Bunkhouse provided upmarket accommodation with an excellent drying room, which unfortunately was tested with weather more akin to autumn than July.

Some of the party chose to take in walks on their way up; but most preferred to arrive dry!

On Saturday, despite strong winds and rain forecast,  a variety of different walks were accomplished. Some chose the Corbett, Stob Coire a’Chearcaill, on the other side of Loch Linnhe, whilst others opted for Beinn na Gucaig, the Pap of Glencoe, Sgor na h-Ulaidh, Beinn a’Chuirn and even the HuMP, Torr an Fhamhair ( The President’s choice – apparently he spent longer on the bike and the teashop than he did on the hill!).  Everyone enjoyed an excellent meal and a relaxed and sociable evening at the Inchree Centre.

Alan Brook's compleation

On Sunday the majority joined Alan Brook on his third completion of the deleted Munro Tops on Mam Coire Easain in Glencoe. Meall a’Bhuiridh, Creise, Stob a’Ghlais Choire and Clach Leathad were also climbed by the group. Anne Butler and her dog, Ralph, had to abandon their plans to climb Beinn Donachain in Glen Orchy; but Ralph’s swimming lesson that was given the day before came in useful as a thigh-deep river crossing was necessary on the way back! Others in the party climbed Beinn Sgulaird and the Kingairloch Horseshoe. Hamish Brown spent the day around Inchree watching waterfalls.  In the evening half the party chose to visit the new pub and restaurant next door to the bunkhouse, while the rest relaxed in the bunkhouse.

On Monday it was raining again…………
