An Gearanach & Sob Coire a Chairn – 05 June

Another bright and sunny morning although the clouds started gathering almost immediately after breakfast suggesting the poorer weather forecast for tomorrow (Wednesday) might be on its way already.

We started the Mamores in an ad hoc way a couple of years ago when we found ourselves with only half a day and our wanderings there have continued in pretty much the same manner. An Gearanach & Sob Coire a Chairn are our final two Mamore Munros and by climbing them from Glen Nevis we can cross the river on the wire bridge at Steall – not a “plus” in everybody’s book and, I think, had we known how bad the midges would be we might just have walked through the river instead.

The cloud cover was more or less complete by the end of the day and for the first time this week we were denied a colourful sunset. The poor weather and rain forecast for Wednesday looked pretty certain although it didn’t matter too much as we would be driving north to Ullapool.
