Tyndrum Weekend November 2013 (By the Way Hostel)

A weekend attended by Deirdre, Elsie, Kasia, Bob & Malcolm. The view of Schiehallion before climbing Corbett Meall Tairneachan on Friday.

Since the weather on Saturday was quite bad alternatives were carried out:- Deirdre, Elsie & Kasia walked a section of the west highland way from Loch Tulla back to Tyndrum, Bob, Malcolm & Gregor climbed Graham Meall Odhar. On Sunday the weather was still bad so a trip to the east found Graham Blath Bhalg between Pitlochry and Glen Shee.
