The Continuing Travels of the great Munro Adventure with Graham and Penny!
Stob a’ Choire Mheadhoin – Munro  46 – 1105 metres  – “Peak of the Corrie of the little waterfall ”
Stob Coire Easain –Munro 39 – 1115 metres – “Peak of the middle Corrie”
Parked up last night in the Creag Meagaidh car park again , wasn’t a long day today so up at 7.30 had breakfast then drove down to Fersit and parked at the outflow of An Dubh Lochan, Boots on and on my way at 8.45.
The weather today was for rain late on so wasn’t surprised that the hills were cloud covered, crossed over the old tramway and onto the long gradual ridge to Stob a’Choire Mheadhoin , the cloud level was 800m but not to bad , just short of the summit it cleared for a brief spell and had a good view of the loch below , a snow slope up to the top then a steep downhill and back up again onto Stob Coire Easain. It had started drizzling by now so it was just a case of retracing the route as far as the large concrete structure then down to the loch side track and a walk back to the van. It was 12 45 so had lunch and headed home to visit Shona.
Today was a rest day as I’m heading out with Rachael for a wee wander tomorrow???
Today’s totals:10.64mls,1226m ascent,4hrs
149 Munros to date.

    Your plant is Dwarf Cornel, and although similar looking is not a strawberry, but closer botanically to Dogwood. Cheers
