Fersit – 01 June

After a late start to allow the overnight rain and low clouds to clear through we set off from Fersit to climb Stob Choire Easain and the adjoining Stob a Choire Mheadhoin. If a translation of these names is of interest or if you would like to hear them pronounced correctly visit Munro Magic.

Most routes involve crossing both summits before dropping into Coire Laire for the long walk out but with low clouds still hanging about and bring occasional showers we walked up Coire Laire to give the weather a little longer to improve. Curiously, this worked and by the time we reached Stob Choire Easain’s summit the clouds had lifted well above it.

The long ridge above gave us views north into Glen Spean as we wandered back to the car in the early evening sunshine during the best part of the day – a good call to reverse the conventional route.

  5. Your pictures bring back great memories. Some years ago we left our camp near Fersit, ran over the Easains and down to Lairig Leacach where we slept the night. Next day we ran the whole of the Grey Corries, over Ben Nevis and down to Fort William to catch the train back to our camp. Two magical days.
