Stob Coire Sgriodain & Chno Dearg – 04 June

Almost unbelievably another day dawned bright and sunny in Lochaber. Again with Keith, before he headed further north, we headed for the hills and again the choice was a pretty hard day or a fairly comfortable one. Fortunately, the comfortable one won and we had time to see a couple of other things on the way to Stob Coire Sgriodain.

Watching the Waverley make here way down the loch away from Fort William was a treat – we arrived just as she was backing away from the pier and we were able to watch her turn and sail away. The small church has been on “our list” since we last went to climb the hills on the other side of Loch Treig with Keith and it is well worth visiting.

Bright and sunny it might have been but the bitterly cold wind made it a day to keep moving and so we did. Over Chno Dearg and back to Fersit almost without pausing. Beinn na Lap could have been added, or at least I thought it could have been added, but it would have been a very long drag back round to Fersit and I lost the vote.
