Beinn Damhain & Meall an Fhudair – 26 May

Sitting on either side of Lairig Arnan above Glen Falloch these two hills are entirely unremarkable in every sense except one. Around 20 twenty years ago Keith completed his round of the Munros but continued to walk in the hills at every opportunity, ticking lists as he went along without any specific aims in mind apart, perhaps, from revisiting the “Best of the  Munros” with friends.  As time went by, as it does, Keith realised a little planning would need to avoid being left with awkward hills to complete a couple of big lists. With a bit more planning it would be possible to complete both lists on the same day and so these two almost adjoining hills, one a Graham, the other a Corbett, became the last on Keith’s lists. So unremarkable are they that Keith’s preference was “not to waste a good day” on them, despite their significance, and so on a dull grey morning with rain forecast for sooner rather than later we headed up Lairig Arnan for Beinn Damhain.
