It was the last day at Ossian Youth Hostel and I needed an easy day as the train was just after 1500. After a tidy up at the Hostel the majority went up Beinn Na Lap, two had went early to climb Leum Uilleim the big Corbett above Corrour Station. It was a grand day though a bit cold in the wind.
We decided that a short wander up the nearby hill Meall na Lice at a lowly 584 metres above Loch Ossian it would give great views and just what we needed to ease our stiff bodies.
We were soon back at the Youth Hostel and there were some Heron’s about nearby and we could hear them as they kept busy maybe with their young. It was an amazing place to be and so wild, the Heron’s had been on the go all weekend. The tented camp of the Duke of Edinburgh kids had gone from the previous night and I was glad they would get a great day on their walk to For William. It would have been a long weekend for them all and a busy time walking from Dalwhinnie to Fort William, well done.
The Corrour Station House is tucked away in a remote, stunning and unique location in the West Highlands of Scotland and is only accessible by train or a twenty-mile walk! We warmly welcome visitors from far and wide with a roaring fire, comfy couches, a relaxed atmosphere and good homemade food. We serve a range of home baking, soups, sandwiches and small selection of main meals as well as teas, coffees, hot chocolates, soft drinks, beer and wine.
Whether you are looking for a quick drink before the train or a main meal after a day on the hills,we have something for you. See our ‘Menu’ page for more details.We’re open from 0830am to 9pm seven days per week until the end of October.
We hope to greet you soon with a glowing fire and the promise of some good highland hospitality and homemade food and drink.
The others arrived and most had a drink whilst waiting at the Station and it was a busy train that took us back to Tulloch then a lovely drive back via Laggan with the car parks full of walkers and mountain bikers. The hills were shedding their snow there was little left of this strange winter but you never know what may happen yet. I am off to Loch Arkaig at the weekend to a Corbett completion on Saturday ( not mine) Our next weekend meet is Skye at Coruisk in late April I cannot wait.
Thanks all for a great weekend.
