Laggan Behind - Munro Bagging 2012

In the never fading hope that some of the group at least might eventually climb all the Munros, we set forth again at the beginning of July to tackle some of the Munros in the Loch Laggan, Ben Alder and Grey Corrie corridor of the A82. 

We were blessed with really great weather all week which made for fabulous views, and far too much walking and cycling.  Tea shops faded into a distant memory (apart from the one in Laggan - fantastic coffee cake if you are ever there) as we spent all day either on foot or on our bikes on some of the long rides in.

As a train had rather inconveniently derailed on the Highland line into Corrour halt we decided rather madly to cycle in to climb Beinn na Lap. Thus, one of the easiest of all the Munro's became an epic challenge (will we ever learn).  We also had a great time on:

Stob Ban - great little hill with fab views of the Grey Corries - and another epic cycle route!

Cheal-Charn and Carn Dearg (including scary Arete on Lancet Edge) - good job it was misty, and well done to Caroline, Bob and Nicky on the excellent map and compass work.

Beinn a Chlachair, Geal Charn and Crag Pitridh (wonderful short bike route in via Moy and then a fair bit of compass work in the mist on the tops but a sunny clear afternoon and evening).

Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg (straightforward hills from Fersit with great views of the Grey Corries and over to Ben Nevis)

Beinn na Lap (megga cycle route but much easier I am sure if you just wait for the trains to be running).

Well done to Bob who now has only four Munros left to go, and Barry for getting the first few under his belt!

We hope you enjoy the gallery of photos which give you an insight into just how mad we all are.
