The Fairly New Bridge in Glen Coe From The Lairig Elide Footpath

A Damp But Warm Start to The Day of Michael's Last Munro

This Newly Refurbished Path Makes The Going Easy

Higher up The View Gets Less and is Still Damp

Now it's Clearing up

Still Waiting on the Col Between Stob Coire Raineach and Stob Dubh (Buachaille Etive Beag) 

Higher up and Still Waiting For Michael

GPS Says Stob Coire Raineach (Buachaille Etive Beag) But Where's Michael 

Chocolate Birthday Cake Will go Nicely With Champagne

If we Ever Get it Open

Where Did John Craven Come From

Open at Last

Have Some Champagne

Cheers

Out of Cloud Now Heading Back Down to Glen Coe

Michael and Champagne Again

Cheers Michael Well Done

Pudding as Well  

Your Pudding Look Nice

I Wonder What it Tastes Like

Finishing The Night Off in Michael's Favourite Pub The Grog and Gruel

Thursday 19th August 2010

Setting off up Glen Finnan

Go Under The Famous Glen Finnan Railway Viaduct

After Sheltering From The Rain Under The Viaduct we Feel it Has Stopped Enough to Carry on

Looking Down Glen Finnan in The Rain

We Seek Shelter From Heavy Rain in a Messy Corryhully Bothy

Crossing a Dodgy Bridge High up The Glen

Has Someone Died or is This Our Route up

From Above Our Route Back Down Meets our Route up 

At Last The Rains Stops and The Sun Makes an Appearance

Sgurr Thuilm Our Destination For Later in The Day

Just Visible The Railway Viaduct Down Glen Finnan

The Summit Comes Into View

Not Far Now

The Only Other Person we Saw All Day

Looking Down a Huge Crack to Coire Thollaidh

The Summit of Sgurr nan Coireachan After a Very Heavy Shower

Leaving The Summit in Low Cloud

As we Make Our Way East Along The Ridge it Starts to Clear up 

Loch Arkaig From The Other Day

The Wind Dries Our Outer Layers

One Last Lump in The Way Now

The Lonely Farmstead of Strathan at The Head of  Loch Arkaig

Sgurr Thuilm Another Late Tea Time Summit 

Looking West From The Summit of Sgurr Thuilm Loch Morar and Just Visible Rum & Eigg Out to Sea

The Ridge Back to Sgurr nan Coireachan

Sgurr nan Coireachan Now Clear of Cloud

Below Glen Finnan With Loch Shiel in The Distance

Our Route Back Now Clearly in View

Looking Down on Our Path Junction From This Morning

It's Nice Knowing we Where on The Right Hill

Corryhully Bothy Now in Sunshine
