Magoo's Bothy Coire Mor 24th June 2011

Magoo's Bothy, Coire Mor, 24th June 2011.

It constantly amazes me that we have so many wonderful places in Scotland that see so few visitors. There can't be many better spots to enjoy some relaxing time as the Bothy in Coire Mor, beneath that wonderful mountain Seana Bhraigh. Even better, the Bothy provides free accommodation thanks to the sterling work carried out by the Mountain Bothies Association. They deserve the support of anyone who enjoys walking the hills.

The approach via Strath Mulzie to climb Seana Bhraigh is an absolute pleasure with the thrill of the mountain apparent from Corriemulzie Lodge. It is possible to drive a vehicle from Oykel Bridge as far as the Lodge, but although the potholes have been filled in, it is still a bumpy ride! I would definitely recommend this route rather than from Inverlael on Loch Broom, purely for the magnetic draw of this shapely mountain.
