Meet Report

31st August to 2nd September 2018 - Ariundle Centre, Ardnamurchan

The meet saw us heading over the Corran ferry to the Ariundle Centre at Strontian. A few of us were lucky enough to be able to take advantage of the fine weather on the Friday with Allan, Gillian and Kate climbing Garbh Bheinn. Chris A climbed Sgurr an Utha (Corbett) and Glas-charn (Graham) near Glenfinnan before heading down to Loch Sunart to climb a second Corbett Beinn Resipol.

Saturday saw a mass assault by Claire, Chris Re, Chris Ro, David T, Martha, Gillian, Allan and Kate on the traverse of Beinn na h-Uamha (Corbett) and Sgurr a Chaorainn (Graham) from Sallachan back to the Ariundle Centre. There was plenty of singing along the way which lifted the spirits although sadly not the cloud level. Claire, Chris Re, Chris Ro, David T and Martha continued along to a second Corbett Sgurr Dhomhnuill before heading back to Ariundle. Chris A climbed Beinn Mheadhoin (Graham) down at Kingairloch.

On Sunday, Carn na Nathrach (Corbett) was a popular choice with Martha, David T, Chris Ro, Chris Re, Gillian and Kate all heading up the Corbett from Kinlochan. Claire also ran up the same Corbett before running up Glen Hurich to explore the Resourie bothy. Fortunately the rain stayed away until we were nearly back at the cars to head back home.
