Meet Report

18th to 20th July 2008 - Black Rock Cottage, Glencoe

Friday evening and 10 hardy souls made it through the mist, rain and midges to Blackrock Cottage which was soon transformed into a warm haven from the elements. The Saturday dawned, well, misty and wet. Some considerable time was spent planning routes to coffee shops or shopping in Fort William before Kate, Judith, Penny and Ian set out for a day on Sgor na h-Ulaidh. The others (Alison, Kenny, Anne, Ron, Fiona and Martin) headed off for a day's scrambling on Bidean.

Sunday and a determined crew of baggers headed out to Glas Bheinn Mhor. From there Penny and Kate continued to Ben Starav while Ian and Judith trotted up Beinn nan Aighenan and all four finished back at the cars within 10 minutes of each other. It's not entirely clear what the others did, but suspicions abound that an early return and catching up on the Tour de France or Big Brother was on the agenda.
