Blackwater Hostel, Kinlochleven (May 2008)

After a 7.00a.m. start from Aberdeenshire, Bob, Andy, Gregor, Kasia, Malcolm and Beinn climbed  Stob a’Choire Mheadhoin and Stob Coire Easain, en-route to the Blackwater Hostel in Kinlochleven. On arriving in Kinlochleven they were joined during the course of the evening by Paul, Marion, Michael, Iain, Morag, Ailsa and Sheila.

A good nights sleep was had by most and an early start on Saturday morning saw Andy and Beinn set off walking from the Hostel to do a traverse of the Corbett Mam na Gualainn while all other meet attendees headed for the Mamores. Starting from Mamore Lodge, all of the group successfully ascended Sgurr Eilde Mor, on what turned out to be a scorching hot day. Bob, Malcolm, Kasia, Iain and Morag continued on to also summit Binnein Mor and Binnein Beag, arriving back at the Hostel around 19:30, looking somewhat tanned/sunburnt!

On Sunday, several attendees made directly for home while Bob, Malcolm, Kasia and Gregor set off to ascend the Beinn a’Bheither pair (Sgorr Dearg and Sgorr Dhonuill). Paul set out for a second day in the Mamores to An Gearanach.

Thanks to Gregor for organising this successful weekend and for arranging the good weather. Significantly better weather than the past two meets to Inchnadamph and Crianlarich 🙂

Congratulations to Bob for ‘bagging’ his 100th Munro on Stob Coire Easian.
Congratulations to Malcolm for ‘bagging’ his 100th Munro on Sgorr Dhearg.
