 Dalwhinnie Meet: February 2015

SMC Raeburn hut.
Glorious day on Saturday, so a team of John, Frank, Len and self (Carole) set off for the two Corbetts of Corrieyairick Hill and Gairbeinn. Lovely drive via Laggan and Garva Bridge to paking spot at Melgarve. 100s of deer added to the remote and spacious feeling - once you turned your back on the pylons.

Early morning at Melgarve

Len, Frank and John ready for the off - just waiting for me to give them a compass bearing! 

Not a cloud in sight over Gairbeinn

2015 Annual Burns Supper

Ohils Mountaineering Club Hut, Crianlarich

Burns' Supper meet this weekend.  Some walking, some skin and some serious high street direct ascents achieved.
Great weekend, a wee bit breezy on the hill but the hut was lovely and cozy.
