Creagan na Beinne

Another good forecast, another Corbett.  Now over halfway!

Not a promising start as I set off from Ardtalnaig on the south side of Loch Tay.

Pretty though.

And then above the cloud, on the way up Beinn Bhreac as a wee warm up.  Ben Lawers and An Stuc looking impressive.

Looking down Loch Tay.

And over there is Creagan na Beinne herself on the left, and to the right the Graham Cist Buide a'Claidheimh on the Shee of Ardtalnaig, which I planned to do on the way back.

Loch Tay again.

Freaked this guy out.

Kenmore at the head of Loch Tay

Summit of Beinn Bhreac, just for fun.  Seemed like a good idea at the time.

West to Creag Mac Ranaich and Meall an t-Seallaidh on the left.

Now to head up there, through the dastardly peat bog.

Came across a little rabbit.  It then made a run for it.

Glorious day.

Regretting the effort put into Beinn Bhreac.

At last.  2913 feet summit in site.

Still a beautiful day.  And just Ciste Buide a'Claidheimh (my first concious Graham) to go.  That's it over there.

There were a lot of these around  - Red Kites I think.

Decision time - scale Ciste Buide a'Claidheimh (on the left) or just head up the track home.  Creagan na Beinne on the right.
Opted to do the hill, thankfully.  Looking across to Creag Uchdag which I did on hogmanay last year.

I guess Grahams don't have big cairns then!  Creagan na Beinne behind.

A fissure. 

The ridge home, with my first two hills on the right.

Looking back to the summit.  What a lovely day.

Nice little bit of peat bog before the descent.  And that is me over halfway through the Corbetts, and started on Grahams when I can.
