Geal-charn & A’Mharconaich – 31 May

These two Munros above the Pass of Drumochter are a “pleasant and undemanding day” according to the SMC and so they were. Last day here before heading south to Honister to help of the last leg of a Bob Graham Round attempt so an easy day was in order. More by luck than judgement this turned out to be a good choice because the rain chased us off the second summit and after a dry sunny morning, at least to begin with, the rain in the afternoon was the heaviest we saw all week. These two gave us our 100th and 101st Munros – Keith compleated a long time ago and is trying to avoid being drawn into another round so they don’t count for him.
