  • The story of the great Munro Adventure gets better and better Graeme and Penny are going so well and are now in some great remote hills. I really enjoyed these last few days and the tale gets better and better. Sit back and enjoy these magnificent mountains and the fitness and banter of Graeme and Penny on their 100 day adventure.  An Teallach (The Forge)

  • Munro Adventure 2015 Day 86( 25th July ) An Teallach to Sheneval.
  • Parked up for the night in a large car park just up from the Bramore junction with a view down to Loch Broom way below.
  • After yesterday’s big day a easier outing was required today.I had my rucksack for the bothy already packed beforehand and just had a few items to add , my plan was to go over the An Teallach hills and into Shenavall bothy for the night. Awoke this morning with sound of rain which turned out to be torrential for about 15 minutes, wasn’t to concerned as the forecast was good and wasn’t planning a early start anyway , headed down towards Corrie Hallie and the parking area was full so went on farther and found a place , started at 11am on a kind of path just past the bridge as I was heading up the normal descent route into the Glas Tholl corrie which avoids all difficulties, after thrashing through the rhododendrons it becomes not to bad until the final part which Is steep and very eroded leading up to the col which still has a bit of snow to go over just at top. It wasn’t long to get to the summit where I met 4 men taking photos with a saltire flag draped over the trig point a tradition of their’s they said.

  • I did there group photo for them and one of them returned the favour, there was lots of people out today dotted along the ridge in the skyline but that was not my plan for today. A steep descent and ascent and was up on Sgurr Fiona in no time.
Great view onto tomorrows hills - look well to each steps.

  • I was now heading for the bothy so went down the W ridge to the col but decided to climb the Munro top Sgurr Creag an Eich. I left my rucksack and did a out and back to the summit.
  • Great views from the Munro Top - few go out to this incredible viewpoint.

    Great views from the Munro Top – few go out to this incredible viewpoint. Sgurr Creag an Eich well worth the extra miles.

     

  • I had a long descent down into the corrie and eventually picked up the path which took me to Shenavall , I was very surprised there was just one rucksack inside and nobody around , two men arrived later after having done the 6 hills to claim it , a bit of repacking and they headed off to walk back out to Corrie Hallie leaving me on my lonesome in this beautiful location.
