Meet Report

22nd to 24th June 2007 - Resipol

Unlike most EMC camping meets this one actually took place with a grand total of two people turning up. It might have been three but I spend a few days before the meet in sunny Ardnamurchan and so didn't get the message from the third person.

On Saturday we woke to a cloud level of 50m and intermittent rain. However, it had improved by mid-morning so Anne and I set off to do Creach Bheinn and Fuar Bheinn. Unfortunately the clag stayed on the ridge all day so we had only fleeting glimpses of the magnificent view. The day was rounded off with an excellent dinner in the Salen hotel.

Sunday was clearer so Anne climbed Beinn Resipol - I stayed on another night and climbed it in similar conditions on Monday.

For future reference, the restaurant / bar on the campsite closed three years ago!
