Tulloch Station and Corrour
17-18 October 2008

Those attending the meet were Judy Middleton, Eilidh Scobbie, Marj Ewan, Gordon Hull, Alec Macmillan, Alex Barbour, Doug Bryce, Ian Bryce and Jim Bryce. On a damp, misty and windy Friday, Judy, Alec, Ian and Jim had a pleasant day on the Corbett Geal-charn Mor, near Aviemore. Lower down the autumn colours were stunning. Meanwhile Gordon got up a wet and misty Beinn Teallach near Tulloch.



Saturday was wet and windy, but it did clear up a bit in the afternoon. Judy climbed the two Corbetts, both called Carn Dearg, at the head of Glen Roy. Alec, Gordon, Doug, Ian and Jim caught the 08:13 train from the bunkhouse to Corrour. They went up Ben na Lap accompanied by squally showers and ferocious winds near the summit. Alec and Gordon returned to Tulloch via Strath Ossian while the Bryces went over Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg to Fersit. Judy very kindly gave them a lift from Fersit to Tulloch.

On the Saturday evening we were joined by Eilidh, Marj (both in top form after Anne Cassidy's wedding) and Alex and everyone enjoyed a meal prepared by the bunkhouse. We also managed to finish a monster bottle of red wine which Alec Macmillan kindly donated as this was his first weekend meet after completing the Munros. Congratulations on finishing Alec - and many, many thanks for the wine, it was much appreciated. Sunday was wild with very strong winds and heavy rain. Judy, Alec and Ian climbed Binnein Shuas, the peak known for its rock climbs. Gordon ascended Beinn a'Chaorainn. Alex continued his run of getting to Munro summits in atrocious weather by succeeding on Geal Charn to the south of Loch Laggan. Eilidh and Marj got to the first top of Beinn a' Chlachair but were weathered off without getting to the summit. Both Doug Bryce and Jim Bryce went home early.
