Oh. My. God

Sunday day walk. 

Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Lèith. 

Up sparrow's fart, x18 out to pick up point. Whizzed up the road by Adrian. Parked at resevoir. Bit of a faff at the car, and then a clockwise route over two lovely munros. The first, Meall a'choirs Leith a round pudding of a hill. At the cairn we stood for ages looking at the 360 degree view of Scotland before us. Not a breath of wind, a bright sun, and good craic. 

After a sandwich and a chat with fellow travellers (a group of young men looking forward to the football) we took the ridge onto Meall Corranaich. A long ridge with stupendous views. And a field of compact snow for us to prove our micro-spikes on. By the time we reached the cairn we were all commenting on what a stupendous day it was. 

The walk off was fairly simple - just follow the fence posts. Only the last stretch was spoiled by mucky bog and the increasing conviction that we would be sucked to a mummifying death and only be found come Spring. 

But luckily we soon found the road and were whizzed home again. 

Home-made sandwiches, a found glove, microspikes and an amazing day out. 

Thanks guys!!
