Ascending Beinn a' Chaorainn

Ascending Beinn a' Chaorainn.

Our only munro climbed at the weekend, Beinn a' Chaorainn provided an excellent short days walking in mixed weather. The day started with the ground frozen and the promise of sunshine, but soon deteriorated. With fresh snow falling on the way up and zero visibility on the summit, it showed how changeable conditions can be on the Scottish hills. The presence of a sheer drop from the cliffs dropping off the summit made sure the compass bearings were thoroughly checked.

Another great winter walk in the the Scottish hills!
